This summer I was so lucky, I got to see in person the trireme Olympias (in water!) and a lot of other cool stuff too. You can check the pictures here:

Now I see why I didn't find the Olympias or the Averoff. The last day I was in Athens, I saw the Averoff from a boat in the harbor, but by then it was too late to visit. Happy to hear they let you take pictures in the War Museum now--they didn't in 2004. Archaeological and Byzantine Museums were closed that spring while they got them all gussied up for the Olympics.
Great photos!

Fantastic trip report and incredibly informative, I learned a lot. I like the Averov polo, I have the legendary cruiser in 1/3000 scale, would love to see it in person.

Terrific. I am envious.

you're welcome guys. Of course I did have to buy myself a 1/3000 Averof as well!
