The National & Kapodistrian University of Athens History Museum
The Athens University History Museum is housed in a historic building which dates back more than 400 years, and is situated beneath the imposing heights of the Acropolis with a panoramic view of Plaka, the Ancient Agora, the Athens Observatory and the Lycabbetus Hill. In the 19th century the building was the home of the renowned Greek architect Stamatios Kleanthis, and from 1837 and for four years, it served as the first home of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. The Museum was inaugurated in May 1987 during the 150th anniversary celebrations of the NKUA. It is one of the few Museums dedicated to the history of a higher education institution internationally, and one of the rare examples where the Museum building is directly associated with the collections on display.
