This is a wonderful new museum. It helped complete the trip to the Acropolis. The inside of the museum is filled with natural light and many of the floors are see-through so you can enjoy the ruins underneath the structure.

The Acropolis museum is so huge and very well done. I would have loved to spend an entire day here, as even that seems less to admire all the artifacts and history of this very old civilization. This is a must do in Athens just to understand the art work.

Beautifully laid out. Not crowded with artifacts but artfully displayed. The excavation is fascinating to see.

The design is gorgeous -- in and out. As you approach you will see ruins below you under the glass walkway. Turn around and you are looking up at the Acropolis with the Parthenon glowing. Inside are the restored Caryatides. Seeing them and the Acropolis hill is worth the trip to Athens.

The Acropolis Museum floating over the archeological site with glass floors so that visitors can view the ruins makes it very difficult for the British to maintain that they should not give back the Elgin Marbles because the Greeks cannot take care of them and make them appropriately available to the public.

Go early in the morning to avoid crowds, and if you can go to the museum before, if you want tours do it in advance you cannot do it there unless you ask a tour guide if you can join their group.

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.
