This museum with an ultra modern building holding with so many ancient artifacts is a great place to wander around. We were with our grand children who have been studying ancient Greece at school they found that it bought all the things they had learnt into reality.

Amazing, loved seeing the ruins which were on the way to the museum and could be seen by walking over them over glass. The museum itself has wonderful objects and well displayed.

An amazing look back into the history of Athens, the Acropolis , the Parthenon and all the associated sculptures and figures. You'll need a couple of hours just to breeze through. There is a cost but the ticket is good for your entrance to the Temple of Zeus as well. No backpacks allowed but there is free storage.

A very modern interesting museum. My husband and I went without knowing its greatness. A lot of history involved which part can be leraned by a movie offered there. Excellent antique pieces can be appreciated. A great place to eat located inside the museum with a great terrace and view.

The museum has a very modern feel to it and is easily accessed before or after visiting the Acropolis. Entry is free if you’re an EU student too. The lobby has a small shop and a few model Acropolis’ showcasing the Acropolis at various dates in history (I loved this). It does contain mostly sculptures and pottery which are linked... More

Its a great museum! Its also air conditioned which is amazing especially on a hot day after seeing the ruins. You can also see the ruins under your feet which is pretty cool.

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighborhood Profile
Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely pedestrianized Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centerpiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
