The museum is dedicated to the great Greek scene painter Panos Aravantinos and is the first museum that George Anemogiannis organizes and curates. In 1969 Kalliopi Aravantinou, that is the sister of Panos Aravantinos, asked Anemogiannis to correct the forgotten 3-dimensional models of internationally renowned colleague of him. This period Kalliopi Aravantinou, apart from models, retains a number of other works of his brother, an important legacy that she will donate to the municipality of Piraeus one year later, in order to be established the Museum of Panos Aravantinos.
Having already dealt with works of the great artist, Anemogiannis was invited to take care for the siting of exhibits and the layout of the halls of the Municipal Theatre of Piraeus, where the exhibition was to be housed. Without, however, having any previous experience and only trusting his instinct, Anemogiannis transformed the halls in the second floor of neo-classical building to gallery. In these halls, he located horizontal show cases and large panels covered with fabric, in order to display three-dimensional and models and painting scenery, costume designs, posters, photographs, postcards and portraits, oil paintings and other paintings of Panos Aravantinos.

Finally, the Museum first opened in 1972, but it remained open for only a few decades. In 2005 the collection was transferred to the Municipal Gallery warehouse, where it still remains untapped. However, the collection is expected to find a roof again and to become accessible to the public.
