The Bath House of the winds is the only public bath of Athens surviving at the present days. It dates from the first period of Turkish rule (1453– 1669) and stands near the Roman forum and the Tower of the Winds. It functioned as a bathhouse until 1956, and is now the property of the Ministry of Culture.
After the earthquakes of 1981 the building was renovated and the Kyriazopoulos collection is displayed in a new re-designed exhibition.
with the Permanent Exhibition " Men & Tools".
In a contemporary, accommodating environment collected objects are presented from a point of view that invites the visitor to explore the narratives behind them, to seek what they might have meant to the person who produced them, and the people who used them in villages and towns, long before mass production.
