Athens Greece Museum Guide

Athens Museum Guide

Many Athenian Museums and museums all over Greece are free on Sundays, and closed Mondays or Tuesdays. EU Students get a discount if they have their student card. Using your still camera is allowed in Greek museums but not with the flash. They wont say why, but I figure its because, if they let everybody use a flash, then they couldnt charge people doing books and commercial work a fee.
