  The Museum of Greek Children’s Art, exhibits drawings and three dimensional artworks by children 5 to 13 years old. It focuses on the field of children’s artistic creativity and is one of the few world-wide on the subject. Created in 1994, it aims from the start to study and present children’s art, to develop children’s aesthetic education, to exchange exhibitions and collaborate with relevant institutions in Greece and abroad. Drawing from its collections the M.G.C.A. renews its exhibits every other year, hosting each time a different theme.
