The museum in its own right is worth seeing for the outstanding design. The museum is modern, sun drenched, spacious and does full justice to the treasures housed within. I also appreciated the care they took not to disturb the archeological site upon which the museum was built. The ancient sculptures are displayed to their full advantage.

Great way to experience the ancient art and architecture of Athens. Great place for lunch and an excellent bookstore and place to sit and browse.

From the outside, it dwarfs its surroundings; but the soaring interiors, flooded with natural light, let the artefacts take centre stage. When construction began, a 4th century BC settlement was unearthed on the site. It has been incorporated into the design through reinforced glass floors, so that visitors hover rather disconcertingly above the ruins. With more than 4,000 artefacts, the... More

You can browse this fine museum in about an hour, depending on your level of curiosity. Many of the remnants of the decorations on the Parthenon are beautifully housed here for your review with scale models of the original decorations to give you a complete look at the beauty of this lofty and important ancient relic.

Modern design, well laid out and very interesting. Loved the entrance with glass covering current digging and sites. Very interesting audio visual display on ground floor. Loved seeing the laser cleaning of object via a camera filming behind curtain (for safety) and onto a screen so you could see the painstaking work involved.

Amazing museum that displays the finds of the Acropolis in chronological fashion. You work your way up through history until at the top you see the stunning remains of the artwork that once surrounded the Parthenon. As you walk in make sure you look down to see the cool feature of seeing the remains that were found underneath the museum.... More

The museum closes at 8 and the guards shooed everyone off the floor at 7:45. We all arrived at the Museum Shop trying to buy a piece of this magical place to bring home. Well, the workers were surely not interested in bringing in some tourist dollars to help for their national debt. They closed early so they could go... More
