A one-of-a-kind museum in Greece, the OTE Group Museum of Telecommunications opened its doors in 1990 and hosts an impressive collection of more than 3,500 items and telecommunication material.
Around its corners, visitors will discover the well-kept stories of communication from antiquity and Byzantium until today - from the visual transmission of messages via smoke signals to the modern times of the internet and mobile phones.

Its collection includes electrical telegraphs, optical fibers, wireless communication systems, telephoto devices from 1949, and one of the first Greek TV studios (from 1965), among others. These unique exhibits represent the evolution of telecommunications and the history of the OTE Group Company, which is inseparably connected to the development of Greek society.

In addition to the preservation of its valuable permanent exhibition, the Museum’s activities vary from using/developing new technologies and digitizing/documenting collections to planning and implementing pioneering educational programs. These are organized for free and student groups and families can attend them throughout the school year. 

The museum is open on weekdays (Monday-Friday) from 10:00 to 17:00 and only for one Sunday per month (you can find out these weekends on its official website).
Admission is free of charge.m
