The Greek National Opera’s Virtual Educational Museum is a digital representation of the thrilling world of the only Greek opera house, since the start of its operation in 1939 to this day.

It is a project in both Greek and English, with an educational and interactive character, open and accessible to all, constantly updated and upgraded.
Right now, the Virtual Educational Museum includes more than 12.000 exhibits: historical photographs, set models, costumes, programme booklets, posters, reviews, scores, musical excerpts, biography notes, and other educational games.

You can visit the webpage of the Virtual Educational Museum and run through its Virtual Exhibition, Timelines, E-Compass and Educational Games to get to know the magical world of the operatic art in Greece!
