“LOVE EVERYTHING INSIDE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

if you are like me, someone who adore greek myths and culture, you won't want to go home after being inside. Every relics transcends to all of the story you have heard so far. If you don't know much and would like to know some fun facts, i'd recommend the book shop and buy a book with black cover telling stories of gods and heroes in greek myths just for 10 Euro (YES, in english).

“Nice building ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

I have watched a documentary about this building and its glass floors. It was really unique how they constructed over the ruins. Besides that i was not that impressed. Istanbul archeological museum is so much better.

“A must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

This museum is a must see as it stores all the treasures from the acropolis. Because it displays mostly statues, it is designed to admit as much light as possible and its architect, Bernard Tschumi, handled the task most beautifully. The museum is careful not overwhelm with over loaded exhibits, so one does not feel exhausted when the visit is over.
