Looking at the size of the building certain expectations appear in regards to its content but no, except few statues there is nothing spectacular. Entrance price is reasonable for such a mediocre exposition, but having all that in such enormously large building rase questions about who (and for which benefit) would agree to build it for a state money....

This was chosen instead of the Plaka shopping area, Not a big fan of museums but this was very interesting , particularly as you could look at the exhibits and then look out of the window towards the Acropolis where the exhibits had come from. Being able to see the intricity of the work done at close quarters was good... More

Amazing museum, full of ancient Greek artifacts. Majestic direct view to the Acropolis itself! This is a place that you MUST visit if you travel to Athens! Every 1st Sunday of the month the entrance is free for the public and if you are a student the entrance is also free if you show your student card.

A modern and interesting museum about Acropoles. I love the fact that students can access the premisses for free.

Unimaginable walk thru authentic artifacts from the Acropolis including the original Caryatids from the Erechtheion. The Museum is stunning from the moment of entry with the occasionally transparent floor providing a view of the archaeological excavation. After visiting the Acropolis, I would highly recommend this museum be your next priority! Allow many hours to savor the history and book tickets... More

This is where most of the originals from the Acropolis are found to keep them safe. Easy to find off Acropolis metro stop. We visited after we went to top of Acropolis.

The museum is modern and the displays are easy to see and understand. There are movies that explain in simple and accessible ways the importance and history of the Acropolis. A must see

Included in the Acropolis ticket. Not too big but not too small. The glass floors are very cool. We had a wonderful salad for lunch in the cafeteria.

Definitely a must see in Greece. The only reason I gave it a 4 star rating was because rushed through it.

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.
