Unique exhibits (such as the decadrachm of ancient Athens) and all that the foreign archaeologists and soldiers have not stolen ...

In Greece, what would you expect of a Numismatic Museum?
It is what it is - great variety on coins.

I visited this museum in August,arranged on two floors, you can find a nice variety of coins, Roman, Ptolemaic, Persian, Islamic, Ottomans and naturally Greek.
Retracing the steps of the first coinage until today.
They give you the opportunity to listen to a guide in English, no additional cost to the price of entry.
