Don't miss it. An architectural masterpiece that will increase your appreciation for the Acropolis ten-fold. Highly recommended to visit before you walk up the hill to the Parthenon.

All the beautiful artifacts have been moved from Acropolis to here. We spent about 4 hours there, 6 Caryatids of North porch of Erechtheum are amazing, and food from its cafeteria is good.

The architecture, so thoughtfully executed by Bernard Tschumi, is absolutely perfect for these ancient Greek treasures. The recreation of the Parthenon with concrete columns inside the museum is genius. The materials, the views out, the displays in, all excellently done.

The design of this museum is interesting, it stands over old buildings which you view by looking down through glass floors, so well done, I loved it!

After visiting the acropolis we walked down the hill to this museum. The museum is informative and puts the actual acropolis in perspective. Their is a great outdoor cafe from where you can see the acropolis and enjoy a cool drink while taking in the enormity of the site and the museum. Topped of our visit perfectly.

There are 3 levels to the Acropolis museum, of which two are historical artifacts and one (the second level) is a shop and a cafe for you to enjoy the view of the Acropolis. Everything as you can imagine is priced higher for coffee, snacks, books etc as expected in a museum setting. However, the entrance to the museum is... More

The first place I wanted to visit in Athens since I didn’t have the chance to see it before was the famous new Acropolis Museum. The architecture of the building was far from great and all the statues and relics were well-preserved and placed in a rational chronological sequence which helped you to understand every inch of this place.
