Hellenic Motor Museum

Athens Motor Museum. Automobiles dominated my interests ever since I can remember myself. My father’s cars, were the first getaway to my passion for driving, not always with his approval. In 1977, when my first child was born, I decided that I had completed the first cycle of my participation in competitions, so I turned to the collection of old cars.

Industrial Gas Museum

In 1857 Francois Theophile Feraldi undertakes the task of lighting Athens with coal gas. Athens Municipality grants the French businessman a 50 year prerogative. For approximately 60 years, the streets of Athens will be lighted with coal gas.

Athens Railway Museum

The Railway Museum of Athens, was founded by the Hellenic Railways Organisation (OSE) in 1978. The museum has a collection of items related to the history of rail transport in Greece.

Hellenic Cosmos

Hellenic Cosmos, FHW's Cultural Centre, was inaugurated in 1998, originally occupying a site of 16,000m2. It was housed in a former industrial building, which albeit maintaining important elements of its original use, it was transformed into an ultra-modern, living museum that aims to be a source of learning and satisfy the needs of the contemporary "society of knowledge".

Shipbuilding Museum

It concerns a modern museum that is directly related to shipping and shipbuilding. The Shipbuilding Museum aspires to become a tourist attraction not only for the Piraeus, but also throughout Greece. Its ultra-modern building, will host significant exhibits from the shipbuilding city's history. This special place on the west coast of Athens will be the house for many traditionally-built boats.
