Hellenic Children’s Museum


Hellenic Children’s Museum


One of the early museum experiences for children between 4 and 12 years old, where they are provided with an environment adjusted to their needs and abilities, is the Hellenic Children’s Museum. The main philosophy of the museum is the conviction that real objects, direct experiences and entertainment support learning. The Hellenic Children’s Museum exists to encourage children to discover, understand, learn, enjoy and shape the world in which they live with a respect for individuality and an emphasis on team work.

The Hellenic Children’s Museum has educational activities on two floors for children from 4 to 12 years old but also a seminar program “Education in museums” as well as parents’ sensitization courses and other adult seminars. The museum employs 12 full-time staff members and 9 part-time staff, supported by approximately 150 volunteers who are employed in all areas of the museum as well as experts in Greece and abroad.

The Museum is housed in an early 20th century neoclassical building in the heart of Plaka. The museum was founded in 1987 on the initiative of Sophia Roque-Mela with the collaboration of a group of young experts.
