Industrial Gas Museum



The old Gasworks in Athens houses the Technopolis City of Athens since 1999.

In 2013, the first Industrial Gas Museum of Athens opened to the public in order to promote and protect a monument of industrial heritage that provided energy and lighting to the capital for about 130 years. The activities of the Industrial Gas Museum coexist harmoniously with the events of the Technopolis City of Athens , currently a meeting point for cultural events with over 700,000 visitors annually.



A visit to the Industrial Gas Museum includes a museum path with 13 stops in specific parts of the plant. Through this museum path, visitors can follow the production line of the lighting gas, admire the old machinery, discover the role of entrepreneurs and that of factory workers, learn about the working conditions and become familiar with concepts such as industrial heritage and archaeology.

For any Athenian or visitor to the city who wants to follow the museum path at the old Gasworks, there are guided tours for adults and students. Apart from these tours, the Industrial Gas Museum offers a series of educational programs for schools and families. Through its Educational Programs: “The children explore the museum in ‘Gazi’, “The Mystery of Gas light”, “ The Black Treasure Hunt”, “Young workers are trained”, “Mass production”, “The factory + we” “Give your lights!”, “Don’t throw it away!”, etc. Participants work in groups and stimulate their imagination discovering, through interactive activities, the history and importance of the old Athens Gasworks.



It is worth mentioning events such as “Sundays at Technopolis for all” with free admission and the joint activity of the members of the Network of Museums and Cultural Institutions of Athens “Our Athens” with free admission activities for adult visitors.

The Industrial Gas Museum through its activities aims at becoming an attractive cultural destination for different age groups and interests.
