The Residence – Museum of Eleftherios Venizelos is classified as an authentic (documentary) home since it is recounting the life of a personage and it is preserving authentic items, most of them in their original position.
The Residence Museum is not just a building containing collections or the original furniture of a bygone era, but as a result of a collective and integrated museological project, has developed the ability to recall the past, which in turn gives to the monument great social and political significance.
The Residence – Museum of Eleftherios Venizelos consists of 3 floors and has a total of 18 visitable rooms – stations in its route, which all include authentic museum material.
The power of a museum is to communicate with its guests. The whole of this effort is aiming not only at gaining the maximum of knowledge one can drain from a place grounded on its memories but mainly on the essential and fecund interaction with the past. This objective becomes even more powerful to the extent that appeals to young people and students who are visiting the Venizelos residence while in contact with Modern Greek history.
The guests coming face to face with the past have the opportunity to create a strong link between collective and personal memory. A (historic) house is more than a memorial to update the lost past. It is a place where people lived their lives.
