Ilias Lalaounis Jewelry Museum

Housed in a neo-classical 1930’s building, at the foothills of the southern slope of the Acropolis, the Ilias Lalaounis Jewelry Museum underwent major renovations to achieve Lalaounis’ vision of creating an international centre for the ancient art of gold-smithing and other traditional crafts. The permanent exhibition, which consists of more than 4,000 pieces of jewellery and decorative objects, encapsulates Lalaounis’ remarkable vision and career. The museum is one of the few in the world dedicated to contemporary jewellery and decorative arts and the only one dedicated to the life work of a contemporary jewellery goldsmith.
