Good place to view ancient byzantine history, culture and lifestyle. There is a beautiful garden outside that is open to the public however entry to the museum costs 4 euros (Dec 2019). Best to visit on foot or using the tour buses because car parking is not very ideal. The staff members are very friendly and helpful
Maybe you are not interested in Christian art, and perhaps your knowledge of Byzantine Greece is less than zero but visiting this museum is a lifetime opportunity. Incredible in the form the way and the size this museum will blow your mind. If the day is good do not miss the opportunity to visit its gardens and the neighboring Lyceum of Aristotle. Keep in mind that the visit will take you more than two hours.

Great museum! As a visitor of Athens, it is easy to forget the long piece of Greek history between the fall of the Roman empire and the Greek independence from the Ottomans. This museum gives you an extraordinary amount of context! It has many artifacts, ranging from late antiquity to ottoman rule. Sadly, the third part of the museum was closed for visitors, which is a shame. I hope it will be open soon :).

Absolutely beautiful. Don't be fooled by the seemingly small size of the place. Most of the exhibition space is underground and is full of the most beautiful artwork. The restaurant is equally wonderful. We had a tremendous lunch.

What a stupendous collection of icons beautifully displayed in an amazing historic building. If you go there don't forget to wander in the extensive gardens which are an oasis in the middle if Athens and are free to enter. Just now there is a great exhibition of sculptures. Try the cafe restaurant also as it is excellent.
