Definitely a unique museum. There are numerous jewelry collections inspired from ancient Greece and many other civilizations. The building that houses the museum is neoclassical and it is very close to Acropolis museum. Every Saturday entrance is free. Highly recommended.
Amazing place, kind and polite staff, very informed about the collections. Nice designs and curating. I was pleased.
