“Meet the Cariatides”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

It's a must to see the real Cariatides. Very modern museum just opposite the Acropolis. Very interesrting are the excavations of the old quarter around the Acropolis. You can see them under the floor of entrance to the museum a seethrough glass.

“Amazing Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

This is a wonderful Museum and so well set out. Best to visit after you have been to the Acropolis. There is so much to see and really well detailed in English as well as Greek. A beautiful restaurant as well with lovely views of the Acropolis.

“It is necessary to see!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

The place where you can still feel the spirit of old times. A breathtaking view of the whole of Athens and the port of Piraeus. Great theater of Dionysus. You just have to see this!

“Interesting exhibits”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

I am not a big museum fan so in my opinion the best part of the museum is the movie on the 3rd floor that provides the history of the Parthenon and how it was built. There is a 3D movie that shows in the morning that is supposed to be even better. As many have commented, the museum is air conditioned which is a welcome relief from the heat. The displays are pretty sterile and most of the pieces have been "reconstructed" and only are partially original stones but I guess that is to be expected when something is constructed B.C. Lots of cute shops on the walkway outside the museum. This is the best area to buy high quality replicas of original pieces.
