A must! The displays were fascinating, easy to get around and very family friendly. The displays give the viewer a keen insight into the grandeur of the structures on the Acropolis, while also providing a close up look at there extraordinary details,

This is a great example of design and function coming together. Being inside the modern building was a great respite from the summer heat outside. As you walk through the exhibits you climb towards the summit and the crowning glory of the Parthenon gallery. All the while you are linked visually to the Acropolis itself. Make sure you take in...

This is a wonderful museum and should not be missed. It is very informative and complements a visit to the Acropolis. Don't forget a meal or coffee in the wonderful restaurant.

Great museum. Beautiful building in and of itself and a perfect place to display artifacts. We toured this after seeing the Acropolis and were glad we did both.

Beautifully laid out and cheap to enter. There are 3 levels and very roomy. I would suggest you visit before you go up to the Acropolis as it gives a excellent overview of the history and the objects taken from the site.

All good, this really is a must visit museum - not expensive either! Exhibits well laid out in a wonderful modern setting. Excellent captions on exhibits. Models and films help develop understanding of the Acropolis
