This is a terrific museum to visit before you visit the Acropolis. It is modern, great location, good interpretation (english). Put it on your to do list.
The history was real cool and you can overlook a Athens because it is right on top of the hill. The crowds build up fast late in the morning so get there early if you can. It is free entrance on every Sundayf from Nov 1st till March 31st as well.

Fantastic way to spend a few hours. Would consider getting up early to be the first there. Otherwise does get congested with large tour groups
