The modern spectacular architectural shell encloses amazingly displayed treasures of our heritage! Proudly standing along the actual monument itself (The Acropolis) it does justice to it and helps the visitor understand it ... So, I would suggest: 1) visit The Acropolis, 2) visit the Acropolis Museum 3) go back to the Acropolis ......

The new Acropolis museum is a masterpiece of design, fully worthy of the treasures within. As you approach the entrance, you see reflected in its windows the acropolis hill and the Parthenon behind you. The Cariatids, the ladies relocated here from the Erechtheion, are a highlight and can be seen much better here than when they were in their original... More

We had the great experience to walk into the museum. The interesting myths all around like back to the past! The library is very good (for the children and student) You can imagin the whole acropolis platform is really amazing by the exhibition on the highest floor.

The Acropolis Museum is a brand new museum, very modern and hosts all the items from Acropolis of Athens, which need to be preserved indoors. It is dedicated to Acropolis (if you want to see more than Acropolis you have to visit the National Archaeological Museum of Athens), therefore it is ideally combined with the visit to the historical site....

I had the honour of being one of the first visitors of the New Acropolis Museum, before it was officially opened to the general public. I cannot say enough good things about this beautiful monument holding the ancient artifacts brought to rest from the most visited site in Greece. This is a MUST visit if you are in Athens. It...

I have visited the Acropolis Museum about 5 times so far on various occasions. The main exhibition is interesting, sometimes they do organize special events, such as concerts when there's a full-moon (most archaeological sites, including Acropolis itself are open during the night on that occasion). In spite of the fact that it is quite busy, especially on weekends and... More

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.
