One of Plaka's largest mansions housed Athens University during the 19th century. Today, it is used as the university museum, where a collection of 19th-century mementoes is on display. Among the exhibits are rare books and old scientific instruments, photos, teaching aids, manuscripts, maps and numerous portraits. The museum's collection gives an insight into how law, medicine, philosophy, theology and natural sciences were taught more than 150 years ago. During the summer, the courtyard is used to stage theatrical performances. Admission is free of charge.
