This museum was great. I particularly found interesting the display showing how all of the marble statues would have originally been painted in bright couloirs; quite different to how we are used to seeing them. I went on a Friday evening in early April (it is open to 10pm) and it was beautifully quiet. I had the galleries virtually to... More

Wonderful, and no other place will leave you with the same understanding of what the plunder of the Elgin Marbles and their continued residence in the British Museum means to Greece. I wondered whether whoever decided to label the missing parts of the frieze with "in the BM," realized the double-entendre of that designation. Anyway, the museum is filled with... More

I visited Akropolis Museum in April during a business trip. Although I do not have a special interest in the antique history of Greece, the museum really caught my interest. The displays are very well described and their background explained. The building itself makes it worth a visit, and it somewhat scary to walk on the class floor of the... More

Modern museum with lots of archeological items from the acropolis. Good descriptions of all items and huge collections. But an audioguide would be welcomed... Nice restaurant on the 2nd floor.

The Acropolis museum is something that will certainly stay in your mind. Seeing all these statues and considering how long ago this was built, it simply takes your breath away. You need to be prepared for spending lots of hours over there in order to read and admire everything, but it's absolutely worth it! Once you are tired, you can... More

Apart from the breathtaking Architecture of this new museum, it is a must before you go onto the Acropolis. It is very informative and allows you to understand the background and history of the A. It's easy to flow through the museum and as you exit it, one has a gently climb up the hill to the A .

a fantastially settled museum, in a new way of exposing the statues and all about the Athens ancient history. The light is glorious and the view to Acropolis too. Every visitor of Athens must have this experience and the feelings that this museum creates.

Together with Acropolis it's a must, when visiting Athens, even if it is for a couple of hours. Don't miss it.
