This new museum situated on the south eastern side of the Acropolis mountain. Tickets costs only 5 euros. I visited these places with Chattours guided tour. The guide explained every... More

Have been there before, but this time was there with a big group of friends. Even after 2 hours visit you still have the feeling there is so much to amaze you in this building. It is all so crystal clear, simple and still fascinating that it is difficult to describe in words. Very pleased also by the friendly guides... More

The new Acropolis Museum is truly magnificent and provides quite the history lesson. It really is worth taking the time to explore all the floors before you get to the Acropolis replicated on the top floor. Needless to say this world acclaimed museum is extremely busy and we made a point of getting there in good time in the morning.... More

If you are going to Athens don't leave before you see this place. It has some of the most precious artifacts of ancient athens. Also don't miss the national museum!

Embraces all that made Greece the envy of the civilized world and presents it in a way that is both fitting and beautiful. This museum is an absolute must for all those who visit the Parthenon site. Consider that this is only a fragment of the items that were actually on the Acropolis. Many if not most are on display... More

If you are travelling to Athens, Greece, it would be a real mistake not to visit this amazing museum! Situated at the heart of Athens, right at the foot of the Acropolis, and in the cobled streets of Aeopagitou , this newly-built museum was made specifically to house the unique marbles of the Parthenon. It is a big museum that... More

The museum is located by the southeastern slope of the Acropolis hill, on the ancient road that led up to the "sacred rock" in classical times. Set only 280 meters (310 yd), away from the Parthenon, and a mere 400 meters (440 yd) walking distance from it. Also there is an easy access for the disabled. You won't have to... More

The new Acropolis Museum is a gem... It's totally worth paying a visit under the Acropolis shadow! I loved the marbles that 'smell' ancient history!
