Located in the beautiful neighborhood of Acropolis and hosted at a charming neoclassical building, the Emotions Museum of Childhood in Athens is a unique destination designed to enthuse youngsters and adults alike.
A member of the Association of Children’s Museums HOI (Hands-On International), it is addressed to children of 5+ years old and adults, in an attempt to raise awareness regarding the emotional development of children and inspire the quest for self-knowledge.

This unique interactive museum uses various exhibits, toys, tales, and performances in order to enhance the children’s ability to express themselves, realize their potential, and get acquainted with the different emotions and their evolution during the process of growing up.
It is also a great chance for parents or other child specialists to reach a deeper understanding of a child’s emotional world by getting educated on their delicate psychosynthesis as well as the numerous changes that are conducted as they mature.

The museum is open on weekdays (Monday-Frday) from 09:00 to 15:00 and from 10:0 to 13:00 on weekends.
