National Gallery

The National Gallery was founded in 1900 and is the most important institution in the history of Greek and Western European art in our country, giving priority to the promotion of modern Greek art. The original core of the exhibits, which was already established in the years of Kapodistrias, was enriched with donations, particularly Western European paintings from wealthy Greeks who lived abroad. Today, the paintings, the sculptures, the engravings, the miniatures and the furniture of the National Gallery is approximately 10,000 in total. In addition to its permanent collection, the Gallery hosts temporary world class exhibitions.
