The amazing collection here at “The μουσείο (“Museum”) of Greek History” is just Greek pieces of art and things that show the amazingness of Ancient Greece. It shows the beautiful and non-beautiful parts of Greece and to me it is quite extraordinary. 

I have always loved Greek history and art which is why I wanted to create this museum, as well as to share Greece with everyone else. When people enter the museum I want them to be blow away by the history and character of the museum. When they leave I want the guests to take with them Ancient Greece. I want them to remember the excitement of Ancient Greece.
