  • [01] Athens University offers guided tours of museums in Athens

    University of Athens (UoA) professors and associates will offer guided tours of museums in the Greek capital, aspiring to introduce its cultural treasures to the people.

    In the context of the initiative titled "Two museums in a day", the public will have the opportunity on Saturday, June 29 to enjoy a guided tour of the Athens University History Museum and the Pavlos & Alexandra Kanellopoulou Museum.

    The Athens University History Museum is located in the heart of the City of Athens, in the district of Plaka, on the northern flank of the Acropolis. It is located in the historical Stamatios Cleanthis Residence, also known as "The Old University" where the first University of Greece operated in the period 1837-1841.

    The prime exhibit of the museum is the building itself. Its collection includes rare editions of handwritten books, portraits of university professors, manuscripts, letters, diplomas, old scientific instruments used in medicine, physics, chemistry and pharmacology and medallions. Among the museum's most valued exhibits is the university flag designed by Nikolaos Gyzis in Munich on the occasion of the university's 50th anniversary in 1887.10.0pt;font-family:"Verdana","sans-serif";mso-bidi-font-family:Tahoma;

    The Pavlos and Alexandra Kanellopoulou Museum was established in 1976 following the donation to the Greek state of the Kanellopoulou collection. It was originally housed in the neoclassical mansion of the Michaleas family in Plaka.

    It reopened in 2010 with the addition of a new wing donated by the late Alexandra Kanellopoulou. The Museum features objects dating from the Prehistoric to the Modern Era highlighting the timeless continuity of Greek art.
