We read in a travel book to visit Acropolis Museum. It is a trip not to be missed. The Museum uses only natural lighting inside. Description of each item are clear and interesting. We spent an enjoyable day looking at unearthed pottery shards, statues and important finds. Be sure to watch the video in the theatre regarding the construction of... More

What a wonderful museum. We walked over from our hotel enjoying the sunny weather. Planned to breeze thru it but ended up spending 4 hours inside!!! ???? Would be nice if England would return the real treasures that were taken "For Safe Keeping" seems like they have a very secure museum right here in Athens to show them off.

This was the best 5 Euros I have spent in a long, long time. The Acropolis Museum is simply fantastic. You might want to start with the movie on the top floor. It provides a solid foundation to understand and appreciate all of the fabulous exhibits in the rest of the building. You can spend hours here if your legs... More

An absolute must for anyone. Classical Greece exhibited as its finest. the visit to the museum should be combined with the visit to the Acropolis just across the road. Visiting the two together enhances the experience 100%!

I only ended up in the museum because it started pouring rain as I was coming down from seeing Acropolis and the Parthenon, but I'm glad I did. The museum is only €5 for adults which I think makes it very worth it. Inside you will find lots of artifacts from Acropolis and tons of information on the history. I... More

From your initial entry into the museum on a glass walkway over excavations of ancient ruins to the top floor exhibit which replicates the frieze around the Parthenon that towers above the museum on the Acropolis, this is museum must be on your Athens bucket list. This museum is world class in every sense - whether you are interested in... More

My ship was berthed at Agioi Theodori, so took a taxi from there to Acropolis. Roughly 70 miles i think. Reached in an hour. One of the very best places of history and architecture I have ever been to. The tickets cost 12 euro as far as I remember. And entry to the museum costs 5 euro more. And you... More

Very interesting museum right beside the Acropolis area, that overlooks the great building itself. A lot of ancient Greek art and architecture examples, wide and airy, not too big and not too small, and overall a nice place to pass the time before or after an Acropolis visit!

I'm so glad we made the time to visit the Acropolis Museum - the building itself is stunning, and allows you to move at your own pace through the exhibits, which otherwise could have been overwhelming. The signage is informative but allows you space to really look at the objects. We especially enjoyed the film on show on the top... More
