Greece’s national art museum presents a rich collection of Greek art spanning four centuries from the post-Byzantine period. The newer wing houses its permanent collection and traces the key art movements chronologically. The 1st floor includes the post-Byzantine period, the gallery’s prized El Greco paintings, including The Crucifixion and Symphony of the Angels, and works from the Ionian period until 1900. The 2nd floor holds leading 20th-century artists, including Parthenis, Moralis, Maleas and Lytras. Works by European masters include paintings by Picasso.

It hosts major international exhibitions.

At the time of writing, the musuem and the sculpture collection, 8km southeast at the National Sculpture Gallery , were closed for refurbishment.
