Family Fun At The Hellenic Motor Museum In Athens
When the weather is rainy and cold and a walk to the park or playground isn’t possible, a visit to the Hellenic Motor Museum is an excellent alternative for a fun outing for the whole family. The Hellenic Motor Museum, that is owned by the Theodore Charagionis Foundation, first opened its doors in 2011 and has been welcoming car enthusiasts from all over the world, ever since.

The museum's collection consists of almost 300 cars (of which about 110 are displayed at a time due to space limitations) and covers more than 100 years of automotive history. In fact, the museum's oldest exhibit is a 1895 horse drawn fire engine from Hungary while the most recent exhibit is a 1996 Aston Martin DB7 Volante. Apart from its jaw dropping collection of cars, the museum is home to an authentic old car workshop, a gift shop, and a Formula 1 simulator!
The museum is located a few blocks from the National Archaeological Museum of Athens and occupies the 3 top floors at the 'Athenian Capitol' building.
