The New Museum - Permanent Exhibition

The Museum of Modern Greek Culture is located in Monastiraki, in the heart of the historical center of Athens, in the city block surrounded by the streets of Adrianou – Areos – Kladou – Vrysakiou, as well as in the Tzisdarakis Mosque.
The museum is a neighbourhood of modern Athens with buildings dating from the 18th to the 20th century, which along with the museum objects they contain, form a peculiar monumental and cultural landscape in the wider urban plan.
The permanent exhibition presents aspects of the modern greek culture from the 19th century until today, through artefacts of the country’s tangible and intangible cultural heritage.
Around 3.000 museum objects, digital exhibits and visual material, family exhibits, premises for educational programmes and temporary exhibitions, a conference room and an outdoor theatre, rest areas, a café and a museum shop, all these make up the image of a contemporary museum with its own, special identity.
