If the weather is bad, but you want to see more of Greece, museums are an alternative that perfectly matches all types of weather conditions. In Greece, they combine in a special way with the sense of local life and culture.

It was quite easy to find information on ticket prices of museums. The majority of them are below 10 euro, there are discounts for different ages and groups. I found information about days in the year when museums are free to visit. If the dates coincide with your stay in Greece, you can take advantage of this. They are as follows:

The first Sunday of the month in the period 1 November-31 March

6 March - the day that honours the Greek actress and politician Melina Mercouri

25 March - Greek Independence Day  

18 April - International Day for Monuments and Sites

18 May - International Museum Day

5 June - World Environment Day

The last weekend of September - European Heritage Days

28 October - Ohi Day - a national holiday

In addition, children under 18 (upon presenting an identification document), journalists (upon presenting an international press card), students from Greece and the EU (upon presenting a document proving this) are entitled to free entry to museums in Greece.

Pensioners from Greece and the EU can take advantage of tickets at a discount for the museum in Greece if they present an identification card.

I did not find a way to buy tickets online although I searched for it more out of interest than necessity. Due to the nature of museums, it is best to buy a ticket on the spot, of course.

For fans of Greek history, here is a short list of museums and links to their sites. You can find more reviews on one of the tourist sites.

In conclusion, I would like to say that the opportunities and reasons to visit Greece are not limited to our traditional idea of ​​a holiday in our southern neighbour. Surely, there are many and more attractive offers to add to your holiday that will make you something more than "all-inclusive tourists", as a popular song, which is my greeting to you, goes:
