Everything about the museum was wonderful. I didn't get to spend as much time as I would have liked but I was able to peruse the vast array of Greek Art and History they have. It is well deserved as being considered one of the best museums in the world. A gem.

I am not really a museum person but went here as part of a tour and really enjoyed it. We had a guide who explained everything which was good as it is was important to see this before visiting the Acropolis. I liked the airy modern setting and how close you could see the artifacts. The glass floors into the... More

After visiting the Acropolis itself, this was nice for filling in the details. Upper floor is especially nice.

Slightly overrated museum. Museum looks impressive from the outside though - and you will definitely feel small in comparison with all the glass parts of the building. Ok, I might be unfair, but after visiting Acropolis I expected more from the local museum, and it just did not have it. You will find more related to Acropolis and Agora items... More

The excavation site under your feet feels as if you are back in time. The museum is well laid out. The emptiness of the acropolis in terms of statues and sculptures gets filled with what you see here. Just imagine these to be implanted at the vacant spaces. It needs time. Don't rush.

Very new, very glassy, very worth visiting as a complement to the ancient hilltop Acropolis which is situated within scenic view and Parthenon museum statutes, motifs, etc. are aligned geographically with the ancient Parthenon on the Acropolis. Lots of exhibits recreating how the Acopolis was built and possibly decorated. While building the new museum, the builders discovered another ancient site... More

Built over ancient ruins, the floors are glass, so you can see the excavations. Full size replica of the Pantheon with the marbles placed so you can envision how it once looked. The original Caraytids are in this museum.

We enjoyed it quite a bit. And it is well-designed, with plenty of signs in English. Explains well how it relates to the Acropolis.
