It is worth every dime one spends on the entry ticket (Students enrolled in EU universities get a free entry and others have to pay 5 Euros). The museum preserves the history of the city that goes back to Bronze Age. The Museum is a must see for both the history buffs and ordinary people curious about the development of... More

The historical museum is at the bottom of the hill to the Parthenon. Very reasonable entrance fee, the new building with it's glass floirs, air conditioning, beautifully presented artifacts and ruins is really awesome. The presentation of the history of Athens and Greece is well informative to the visitor on the walls, plinths and displays. I really enjoyed the whole... More

It is a tremendous building but inside is nothing special. The most interesting thing was a document about Acropolis, original Kariatida and there were statues from Parthenon in lifesize and that's all. Kerameikos museum was much better..

This is a beautiful, well done and new museum supporting the Acropolis. It is modern, laid out very well and impressive. It is situated on top of ruins that are currently being excavated, and the presentation of glass floors so that you can see the ruins underneath was ingenious. It was only 5E/person, and takes 1- 1.5 hours max to... More

I've never been to a museum anywhere in the world that was as loud as this one. There were dozens of school groups, dozens of tour groups, and hundreds of locals and tourists working their way through the exhibits, all talking and/or shouting. This particular aspect of this otherwise stellar museum was incredibly annoying and just downright unpleasant. Bring earplugs... More

The most interesting was the video about the Acropolis and its research. The plaster duplicates look poor and disappointing. The show on ground floor is interesting.

Best combined with a tour of the Acropolis ( preferably a guided one ) , this beautiful museum overlooks the famous site and is full of marvels and antiquities. The new museum is far more accessible and engaging over its more 'stuffy' elder cousins and was very popular with couples, families and school trips etc. Peaceful and modern, the vast... More

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.
