“fabulous new museum, well displayed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Obviously this is a unique museum, given what they have to display, and their location "under" the Acropolis. Well laid out, easy to follow, will work well for anybody from novice to academics knowledgeable about this history. Large numbers of people but didn't feel crowded. Tasteful giftshop. No complaints, other than a few places to sit briefly in the galleries would be welcome.

“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!
