History Museum
“The museum was founded in 1986 in order to house the collection of Cycladic and Ancient Greek art belonging to Nicholas and Dolly Goulandris. Starting in the early 1960s, the couple collected Greek antiquities, with special interest in the prehistoric art from the Cyclades islands of the Aegean Sea. The Museum's main building, erected in the centre of Athens in 1985, was designed by the Greek architect Ioannis Vikelas. In 1991, the Museum acquired a new wing, the neo-classical Stathatos Mansion at the corner of Vassilissis Sofias Avenue and Herodotou Street.”

Science Museum
“The Goulandris Natural History Museum was founded in 1965 by Angelos and Niki Goulandris in order to promote the interest for natural sciences and it is housed at a beautiful building at the area of Kifissia. From its foundation until the present days it is a model for creating an awareness to the public and protecting –mainly– endangered species. So, if you are excited by the world of plants and animals, a visit here is necessary. It possesses exhibition areas that deal with Botany, Entomology, Hydrobiology, Geology, Herpetology, Ornithology and Paleontology. It is worth noting that the first exhibition areas of the museum (biology of plants) have been designed by the British Museum of Natural History. The museum possesses one of the best educational departments with excellent activities, and a wonderful garden with many trees, bushes and a great variety of plants. Among them stands out the very tall Lebanon cedar at the centre of the garden. Furthermore, here is the café Ammonites and the Museum Café-Restaurant where you can enjoy cool beverages, your coffee or cold dishes and snacks.”

“Το 1978 ο γιος του Ηλίας Γουναρόπουλος δωρίζει το ατελιέ του ζωγράφου και 40 ελαιογραφίες και σχέδια στον ΔΗΜΟ ΖΩΓΡΑΦΟΥ και δημιουργείται το ΜΟΥΣΕΙΟ Γ. ΓΟΥΝΑΡΟΠΟΥΛΟΥ. Το 1990 ο Δήμος Ζωγράφου επεκτείνει το ΜΟΥΣΕΙΟ κτίζοντας ένα νέο κτίριο δίπλα στο παλαιό διατηρητέο ατελιέ του ζωγράφου, το οποίο λειτουργεί ως ΚΕΝΤΡΟ ΤΕΧΝΗΣ ΚΑΙ ΠΟΛΙΤΙΣΜΟΥ και το οποίο συμπληρώνει την λειτουργία του κυρίως Μουσείου. Έτσι στο μεν παλαιό κτίριο-ατελιέ του ζωγράφου γίνονται ξεναγήσεις επισκεπτών και κυρίως μαθητών σχολείων στην ζωγραφική του G. GOUNARO, ενώ στο νέο κτίριο του Κέντρου Τέχνης γίνονται εκθέσεις ζωγραφικής, διαλέξεις και γενικά πολιτιστικές εκδηλώσεις. www.gounaropoulos.gr”
