The Jewish Museum of Greece is at 39, Nikis street, in the centre of Athens, not far from the Acropolis and other sites of interest.
Its 19th century renovated building is easy to find, as Nikis st. runs parallel to the very busy Filellinon st. and Amalias Avenue, while being quite close to the Syntagma Metro Station.
How to get here:
Using the Metro
By far the easiest way to get here. Get off at Syntagma Station. Once in Syntagma Square, look for Mitropoleos st. (in the lower half of the square, at its SW corner). The first street branching off the left of Mitropoleos street is Nikis. Number 39 is a three minute walk from there.
By Bus / Trolley Bus
You may use several buses or trolley buses depending on where your starting point is. Ask for those which stop at Syntagma (and then proceed as above) or at Filellinon st. There is one bus stop and one trolley-bus stop in that street, next to each other, across what is called the “Russian Church” (no, it doesn’t look Russian at all). Once off the bus, turn right into a small, pedestrian alley (Kydathinaion) and then right again; the Museum will be on your right-hand side.
The museum is conveniently close to the T1 Tram Line, namely Zappeio-N. Faliro. Get off at Syntagma, turn your back to the National Gardens and cross the busy Amalias Avenue, then, its parallel Filellinon st., and walk on to the next parallel street, which is Nikis. The museum should now be on your left.
On foot, after exploring Plaka or Monastiraki
Once in Plaka or Monastiraki, you cannot miss Adrianou street, easily recognised by the dozens of souvenir shops and throngs of tourists. Look for Kydathinaion street, which branches off it. With your back to Akropolis, go down Kydathinaion street, until it intersects with Nikis street, about 4 minutes away. The Museum should be across the street, on your left.
