The Fascination of War

From the wars between Athens and Sparta, through the Greek war of independence, to the Second World War and beyond, this museum, run by the Greek armed forces, has a comprehensive collection dedicated to the history of war and the instruments of war.

You'll find a vast array of weapons from the primitive to the most modern, sling-shots to drones. The exhibits include items from ancient Japan and China, but the centerpieces are weapons from the wars in which Greece has been directly involved.

If the history of war interests you, this large collection is great value for money.
