To encourage every child to discover, to understand, to learn, to enjoy and to shape the world in which (s)he lives with a respect for individuality and an emphasis on teamwork.

This mission statement is what the Hellenic Children’s Museum stands for. It is a non-profit organization of public welfare, legally established in Athens, Greece in 1987 by a group of young professionals.

Its purpose is to help children develop all aspects of their personality in order to become citizens who respect their own individuality and to obtain a social conscience. 

The purpose addresses all children, without exception, families, school communities and everyone who is interested in the multilateral development of children or is directly or indirectly related to children.

Hi, Welcome to my Blog!

I am Celeste, a mom of two (ages 7 and 10) who loves to travel. I live in Athens for 20 years and have travelled all over the mainland and islands of Greece. I did not stop that journey when I became a mother. I feel that I am the expert at travelling with  children in Greece because I have been doing that since my kids were babies. I love to be out and about and to discover with my children. It became my passion to find unique family vacation destinations and experiences. I created Family Experiences Blog to inspire and to share remarkable places, quality activities and things to do with kids. Join me as I explore Greece with my family.
