Don't miss it

If you visit Athens this is a place not to miss. Excellent architecture and to learn about the extraordinary story of today's West civilization.

The modern design of the museum is beautiful and provides a necessary companion to the Acropolis, particularly if you didn't have a guided tour. You are able to get very near to the exhibits, and as such there are plenty of officials on hand to prevent people leaning on them or touching them, which is fair enough. Having not seen... More

If you are spending some time in Athens you must add the New Acropolis Museum to your to do list. We did this after climbing the Acropolis on one side and came out at the museum which completed our experience

The museum has plenty of artifacts, mostly carvings/ sculptures. Felt a bit plain until the top floor with a great video on the history and construction of the Parthenon. Free entry for students.
