B&E Goulandris Foundation
The Greek capital welcomes the Basil & Elise Goulandris Foundation – one of the most anticipated cultural projects of the past years.

Apart from the Museum of Contemporary Art in Andros, Basil and Elise envisioned the creation of a museum in Athens, which would allow a broader audience to become introduced to modern and contemporary art.
The collection focuses on modern and contemporary art by Greek and foreign artists, including rare works by masters of the European avant-garde such as Cézanne, van Gogh, Gauguin, Monet, Degas, Rodin, Toulouse-Lautrec, Bonnard, Picasso, Braque, Léger, Miró, Giacometti, Balthus, and others, as well as works by distinguished Greek modern painters including Parthenis, Bouzianis, Vasileiou, Hadjikyriakos-Ghika, Tsarouchis, Moralis, Tetsis and others.
The museum covers a surface area of 7,250 sq.m. and consists of 11 floors.  The museum is home to a museum shop and a café-restaurant which is located on the mezzanine floor. On-site there is also a library with around 4,500 books, a children's workshop, and a state-of-the-art, 190-seat amphitheater, designed to host events including lectures, conferences, screenings, performances, concerts, and other artistic and scientific activities.

The foundation is located in Pagrati, within easy access from the city center and Athens' other significant museums.
