Industrial Gas Museum

The Athens gasworks, the site where Technopolis of Athens is located, reopened its gates to the public on January 2013, approximately 30 years after its operation closedown, as Athens’s first industrial museum. The Athens gasworks had supplied the city with lighting and energy for almost 130 years, up until 1984 when it was permanently closed down. Visitors have the opportunity to tour the plant’s facilities, observe the coal gas production line and discover a forgotten part of the history of Athens. Topics such as industrial heritage and industrial archaeology, industrial working conditions at the plant, old and new forms of energy, unfold before the visitors’ eyes through original objects and equipment, numerous photographs, audio testimonials and video projections. The museum’s gift shop includes large range of items inspired by the old gasworks, such as original jewellery, stationery and decorative items.  

Tue-Sun 10:00-18:00/ Closed Mon
