Modern museum just south of the Acropolis. A good number of artifacts but nothing overwhelming. Can be a great adjunct to visiting the Acropolis itself.

Very modern museum. A lot of space, not clutter so easy to view the artefacts. Locker room for bags to be stored. Good cafe.

I went in August 2016, and was surprised by the size of the museum and the number of exhibitions. Only downside was there are no formal guided tours, unless you book ahead eith an outside tour guide (which we only found out when we purchases our ticket.). However, there are people all through the museum ( who are identifiable )... More

I usually love National Museums, but this one was very disappointing. I did not enjoy it and am rather sorry I went. My time would have been better spent at one of the other museums. It might have been a better experience with an audio guide. Tour guides were available--for a price-- which I felt you should not have to... More

All the relics are placed on the 3 floors that constitute the meseum as it was the parthenon. The fresco are amazing and the view from the inside is so great.

This museum has so much I could not begin to describe it. The historic past is preserved in an immaculate facility. The written descriptions of the artifacts and the guides do an excellent job of making history come alive. This is not a "run in and out" if you really want to experience the wander of this museum. Reasonably priced,... More

Visiting museum first in air-conditioning & with smaller crowds gives you a better basis to view the actual ruins & understand what you're looking at without feeling overwhelmed by the heat and masses of people on the plateau.

The stunning Acropoli lies across the street on top of the hill. The new museum rests above an ancient entitlement. The upper level display is sporadic and the friezes from the Acropoli have too many plaster casts which look terrible next to the weathers yet noble original pieces. The lower level displays are much nicer and recreate the temple life... 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.
