Priced very reasonably and large with interesting pieces however the security is nothing short of hardcore!! Guards watch your child's every move, I held both of my children's hands and they walked beautifully with me but it did not stop us being followed around under intense scrutiny this made us feel extremely uncomfortable and tbh couldn't wait to get out...

So excited to see this wonderful museum...as another reviewer commented, it is the sublime blend of modern and ancient. Love the caryatids in all their magnificence, and the fact you can view the Acropolis whilst in the museum. We are a bit slow, but when we realised the top floor is a replicated layout of the Parthenon, everything clicked. A... More

We loved this museum but make sure you allow 3 hours to get all the way around it. Also go early as you will not have much of a chance to sit down as there are very few seats inside

The Museum itself is a work of art. The modern contemporary building is perched atop the archaeological site of Makrygianni. The inside is spacious and comfortably hosts the many visitors. While the displays and artefacts on show are (I hate to say similar) of the same historic genre they are quite outstanding, this however may lead to the average person... More

A great historical introduction before going up to the Acropolis. Wish they did more interactive exhibits but definitely worth while going.

The museum is beautifully laid out and although there were a lot of people there when we visited, it did not seem crowded. Although it does not offer tours there are attendants on each floor to answer your questions and easy to read explanations on each exhibit.. I think a visit to the museum is a must do if in... More

A great deal behind the story of the Acropolis is discussed and displayed in this museum, including some of the pieces which have been removed from the Acropolis. The architecture is spectacular and blends the Acropolis beautifully into the museum through the large glass portals. The preservation of old foundations and ancient digs beneath your feet makes this one of... More

This is a lovely modern museum with lots of archaeological finds on display. The museum is overlooked by the Acropolis and is certainly worth a visit if you are in Athens.
