it is very well done and easy to navigate. It is just unreal to think about the condition of the artifacts relative to their age. Enjoy your visit.

We visited the Museum after visiting the Acropolis and enjoy all the uncovered items that were found inside here. It was also a great place to get out of the heat. The first two floors don't allow pictures so you won't get to capture some of the items that you can see in here.

A great way to start your tour of the Acropolis. Definitely, what the movie about the history and construction of the Acropolis. It provides so much information and makes visiting the site much more enjoyable. Obviously, the artifacts are amazing.

This place is spectacular. We visited after coming down from the Acropolis, which was great. We could visualize where many of the artifacts were, and it really added to our enjoyment. Not only are there a wealth of beautiful pieces of statuary and other things from the Acropolis, but the building is a great example of architecture working together with... More

This museum was built to encourage the British to return the Acropolis artifects they have taken, currently housed in the British museum. Unfortunately the British have not responded. nevertheless this is still are very interesting museum to visit and you realise the scale of what the acropolis initially housed.

Entry to this museum was cheap. There are many wonderful statutes to look at. It's disappointing that you aren't able to take any photographs in the museum.

Exactly what I expected. It's a modern Museum next to the Acropolis with a coffee shop. There are glass walkways with mosaics and buildings underneath one's feet.
