Before Barbie, iPads and LEGO took over, kids were entertained in very different ways. Dive into a toy box at the Benaki Toy Museum and see 20,000 children's toys, games and childhood items, from antiquity to 1970! Plus toys from the Roman, Byzantine and post-Byzantine periods.
Put away the gadgets and step into an old-school world of toys! The Benaki Toy Museum is based on the vintage collection by toy-lover Maria Argyriadi, which is one of the most important in Europe!
Be wowed by 20,000 toys and games and childhood items from Roman, Byzantine and post-Byzantine periods to 1970. See items remade by elderly Greeks, such as bows and arrows made from tree branches and string, and cars made from tin food cans.
