The National Museum of Contemporary Art is a fairly new museum that was founded late in the year 2000. The building itself looks new, but there are very few signs that it is a museum. You need to stick your head through the door in order to see that you are in the right place.
Finding The National Museum of Contemporary Art
Use the metro and get off at the Syggrou stop. You can get on Trolley 10 and get off at the Syngrou stop, but check on Google maps first to see where you should disembark. There are also several bus routes that take you close to the museum.

If you have a passion for contemporary art, then consider going to this museum. Otherwise, you should probably give it a miss. It is not very popular, it is rundown and is not very inviting. Many tourists assume it has closed or shut down because it doesn’t look very inviting. Most Greek locals will not know where it is, so you will have to plan your visit prior to setting off. Do not be fooled by the website’s building image. Click the “Museum link” and then the “Plan your visit” link and it will show you a true image of the building along with the words, “We have moved.”
