Jewelry Museum Ililias Lalaounis
This is a different kind of museum. There you will see an impressive display of more than 4,000 artistic creations inspired from the different periods of Greek History, but also from other civilizations, from nature and technology. Gold, silver, gems, the unique jewels created by artist Ilias Lalaounis from 1940 to 2000 are a feast of beauty, creativity, and craftsmanship. The museum is located very near the Acropolis Museum and the Acropolis so you can visit it “on the way”. Entrance for children is free.
