I had taken a art history class and going here was an amazing experience. Very wonderfully done and quite breathtaking. It is sad to hear how other countries have taken artifacts and are still to this day unwilling to give them back so that they can be shown here in the museum.

Nicely Laid out, the Acropolis musem is a good finish to visiting the site. Several floors of artifacts. They also have a gift shop & cafe. Good ending to a day in Athens

The museum is very interesting and has a lot to see. I would suggest to visit the museum after being to the Acropolis, because it is possible to "absorb" more information.

Definitely one of the must see sights in Athens. The view is incredible from the top; and make sure to see it at night when it is all lit up in it's glory.

The museum is a must see and experience before you explore the acropolis. There is a documentary playing in English about it and it is very informative.

It has won world awards for the quality of architecture, that allowed even the old streets to be seen below the glass floor slab in the entrance foyer.I did not expect taking snap shots to be not allowed in most floors. I wished there was more about the development of philosophy and the narrative of Socrates, Plat, Aristotle, Alexander etc.

This is a newly constructed, modern museum. It is well laid out and is angled like the Parthenon so you can get the feel of what it was like. We were sad to see so many white statues (reproductions) on display because the actual items are located in British Museums. It is time for England (who made a deal with... More

One of the best displays of historical artefacts I have ever experienced. This time it is not dull to be amongst old pottery and statues. The new museum is first of all a real architectural site. The entrance is impressive and the story behind the columns that are fdfully earthquake proof (tested in California) whilst they are planted amidst ancient... More
