COLLECTIONS

The Museum MECHOLATON has been actively collecting and restoring vehicles for many years, even before its official establishment in 2007. This resulted in a collection which is currently displayed in the following exhibits:

  • Bicycles
  • Motorbikes
  • Cheirolata *
  • Cars of Greek manufacturers
  • Various items

The exhibits cover the period from the mid-19th century to today.

Special emphasis is given to the Greek culture by linking the collections of the museum to the history of Greece as well as the daily life and ingenuity of Greek society.

The collections of the museum open doors to personal stories, and record the development of cultural heritage.
