Drossinis Museum is in the center of Kifisia, a northern suburb of Athens, and it is housed in “Amaryllis” villa, where Georgios Drossinis lived in his last years and which is named after a central character of one of his earliest and most popular works. The museum was founded in 1997 with the aim to preserve and promote Drossinis’ (1859-1951) multidimensional work. Drossinis, along with Costis Palamas and Nikos Kampas co-founded the New Athenian School, the Greek literary ‘1880s Generation’, a movement which renewed Greek literature and fought for the establishment of modern Greek language ("Demotic") The museum includes three halls, which are on the first floor, while the ground floor houses the Municipal Library of Kifisia, according to Drossinis’s wish.
Going upstairs, the first hall on the right is the "Intellectual" Hall. Here lies Drossinis’s intellectual treasure. Numerous exhibits demonstrate his significant presence in letters and his important contribution to education in Greece. Here one can find archived all issues of Estia newspaper, of which Drossinis was editor-in-chief and director and which circulated daily since 1894 and had a determining role in Greek life. In the same hall, the visitor can see a sample of Drossinis’s work as a publisher: Asty, To Imerologion Tis Megalis Elladas ("Journal of Great Greece"), Nea Hellas (“New Greece”), Ethnike Agoge (“National Education”) are some of the magazines and journals published by Drossinis, which aimed towards the intellectual rebirth of Greek people.
In addition, there is a great number of books exhibited here which were either edited by Drossinis or published by the "Society for the Propagation of Beneficial Books" (Σ.Ω.Β.), of which Drossinis was a co-founder (along with Demetrios Vikelas) and a lifelong secretary. The poet’s collaborations in Greek publications (Athinai, O Noumas, Scrip, Romios) or foreign ones - Cypriot, French, German and American - can also be found in this hall. Manuscripts, correspondence with Greek and foreign intellectual people, a collection of newspapers with articles about Drossinis and personal belongings, all complete the poet’s intellectual personality.
