Athens for All

Awesome activities for families with kids from 4 years old are just a click away: art games, quizzes, theatre, tours and video games, all about Athens!


“Sundays for kids”, the beloved institution that dynamically came back this March, will be available for the audience, the families with kids between 4 and 11 years old, and fully accessible online with a series of exciting activities!

This Sunday the 12th of April, under the theme “Athens for all”, is dedicated to the city of Athens for two important reasons: the Industrial Gas Museum wishes to honour this way the anniversary of the International Day of Monuments and Sites which is celebrated every year on the 18th of April and also, commemorate the innovative educational program of the City of Athens Kids for the city which this year celebrates four years of activities and has highlighted the monuments and the landmarks of the city through the eyes of the young students of Athens.

Specifically, the 18th of April, has been established by UNESCO and the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS) as the International Day for Monuments and Sites. This anniversary aims to raise awareness of the important issue of Cultural Heritage protection. To this end, many different events are being organised around the world in an attempt to inform a broad audience about the importance of each country’s monuments and their difficulties, as well as to promote the issue of their protection and inclusion in the contemporary social, cultural and economical happenings.

With many fantastic online activities and the help of the Museum’s people, parents and kids between 4 and 11 years old will explore in the most fun way their city, important monuments, their neighborhood and, of course, Technopolis that today is housed at the premises of an old gas factory that constitutes of a rare monument of industrial heritage.

It’s the perfect opportunity for young and old people to get to know Athens and its monuments, to discover the value of visiting, protecting and loving them!
