Since we were visiting Athens for just one day as part of a cruise, we got an early start and hit the Acropolis first, followed by this museum. If I were on a more leisurely trip, I'd recommend doing the museum first because it's really informative and could give you some great perspective for your visit to the Acropolis. The... More

The no camera and photos rule was heavily enforced, even though many people ignored it and were constantly spoken to. The history and artifacts were amazingly preserved and organized in a very logical way. A must see place when in Athens.

We loved it. To have this museum in its location and built the way it is to mirror the stunning Pathernon is fantastic. Very good to understand the Acropolis as a whole.

This was my second visit in 6 years. The well thought out layout and the informative reading materials are just as awe-inspiring the second time around.

Fantastic underground excavations are visible through glass walkways and open area view ports. Soon to have pathways that allow visitors to get closer to the ruins.

A lot of good information to go along with the whole archeological site. This is a small part of the overall park but should not be missed.

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.
