Museum of Traditional Pottery information
This small museum in a lovely neoclassical building around the corner from the Keramikos site is dedicated to the history of (relatively) contemporary Greek pottery, exhibiting a selection from the museum’s 4500-plus collection. There’s a reconstruction of a traditional potter’s workshop. The centre holds periodic exhibitions.
