The Vorres Museum is the vision of Ian Vorres. The museum, which is dedicated to contemporary Greek art and folk art, is, by a 1983 presidential decree, a non for profit foundation (FEK 406, 14.07.1983) and a legal entity of private law. Its aim is the promotion and dissemination of Greek civilization through the creation of infrastructures and permanent collections, the presentation of exhibitions, the implementation of educational programs, the design of publications as well as the organization of events, happenings, speeches, etc.

The Vorres Museum is located in Paiania in an area covering about 3 acres and is housed in a complex of buildings totaling 4,500 square meters, which is surrounded by extensive courtyards and gardens. It is supervised by a ten member Board of Trustees, which decides on the operation, strategic planning, the management and allocation of its funds and is responsible for the fulfillment of the Foundation's aims.
