Very informative, especially good if you have already visited the Acropolis. (Students get a discount if an ID is shown, even if the school is in the States) Peace and love

up on the 3rd floor they built the floor like the pantheon should have looked like with all the frills on, it gave a good idea how it should have looked like if it was still intact. On the lower floors all the small details are explained about the things they found around.

New Acropolis museum is not only the collection of ancient Greek masterpieces but also a fine example of high technologies implemented in the historical field. The museum is equipped with video presentations along with exhibited items. In addition, visitors can enjoy a cup of coffee in the cafe on the terrace and purchase memorable souvenirs in a museum shop. The... More

Museum is brand new and terrific value (probably too cheap at 16 EUR for 2 adults, 2 children). Informative and air-conditioned it was a great to do after heading up Acropolis in the heat.

The Acropolis Museum is a must see. It is packed with treasures of all sorts from the Acropolis hill side as well as the ancient city of Athens. Enlightening scale model of the Parthenon inside with exact placement of the various preserved sculptures and reliefs. The café is also worth a visit. It's an all around must!

Loved all of it. We had limited time. However, we were put off by the rule of no pictures! We were happy that we did the museum.

Visited the museum with family of 7. The entire family was very impressed which says quite a lot since many are not avid museum goers. The glass floors and ongoing views of the ongoing exacavations were fascinating. It was nice to see up close the displays of the remains of the Acropolis sculptures from the frieze as well as the...

Neither my husband nor I enjoyed this museum, and I'm very interested in ancient history. There weren't a lot of signs explaining what you were seeing, and the statues got very repetitive, very quickly. We both preferred the National Archaeological Museum of Athens to this one. If you only have time for one museum while in Athens, I'd say skip... More

We visited the museum before touring the Acropolis. This gave us a terrific background to imagine the Acropolis in her full glory! What is missing in the New Acropolis Museum are the pediment sculptures on display in the British Museum. Now that Greece has an appropriate facility, time for the "marbles" to return to their homeland!

Its very interesting to see the lives ancient people lived before through the artifacts. The museum also provides demonstrations on the artifacts' original appearance & videos on the stories behind the artifacts!! This allows me to understand a bit on Greek history even I did not go with a tour guide. Just a friendly reminder when you walk from Acropolis... More
