I agree fully with the review from Maiden who said you should visit the museum first and then trek up to The Acropolis - really helps bring to life what you will see on the hilltop. The museum is very well laid out and comfortable. The glass bottom floors that look through to active archeological sites are a great bonus.... More

A great museum containing artefacts and historical information relating to the Acropolis. Huge floor space means you could be here for hours if you read all the panels. The design of the building is fantastic - it contains panels of glass at which you can look down at actual excavations. As well as this, the restaurant on the 2nd floor... More

Even before you enter the museum, look down on history from under your feet. So much of history to understand the beginning of civilization.

You will understand more about the Acropolis and its place in history by visiting the Museum before climbing up the hill to the actual location. The museum is well organized and an architectural wonder in itself.

Wonderful modern museum and very educational layout. Go to the museum first and then to the Acropolis itself because you will much better understand what you see at the Acropolis. I did both with a private guide which I can really recommend for those who want to hear and understand just a bit more.

Great. Spectacular views through glass floors, and interesting remains from the parthenon. Take the time to wwatch the film telling the story of the parthenon.

A spectacular museum, both in terms of the building and the collections it contains. Most helpful to see before viewing the Acroolis and the Parthenon.

A visit to Athens should include going to the Acropolis Museum. It is very ceap to enter - 5 Euros. There are fantastic expositions and it really gives a good overview of ancient Athens.

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.
