Yes, I was to Acropolis Museum. It was in the early afternoon in a sunny day. And on the road to museum I learned something very wise. We hurried to the museum entrance. One Athenian advertising its restaurant invited us to have something at his terrace. But we were in a hurry and he said something like this: „Where do... More

We visited the museum 2 hrs before the closing time and quite enjoy it without many tourists around. To go to the 2nd floor, you have to pass through most of the 1st floor. It will be more convenient if there's a staircase closed to the entrance...

We recently had a guided tour of this museum. It was fantastic. 10 years under construction, it straddles archeological ruins found during construction. It ties in with the actual Acropolis in design and in proportion and orientation. A fascinating place but I recommend you get a guide to get the most from it. There is two very nice cafe areas...

For 5 euro for sure it worth visiting this place. We went there after we visited Acropolis but we should have visit the musuem first since some pieces are put together so you can visualize better when you see actual structure.

My friends and I enjoyed the Acropolis museum, and we're very impressed by all the exhibits. We tried to go early in the day, around noon, but there was a huge line. We decided to come back later, around 6 pm, there was no line and felt like we had the place to ourselves! So wonderful! We spent about an... More

Acropolis museum is a must see! The impressive layout of the building has glass covered digs exposing ancient finds at the very entrance continuing to intrigue you with more findings as the centuries become closer to modern times. You mount stairs that climb into modernity with each step. The following floors are packed with progressively modern artifacts until on the... More

The New Acropolis Museum is a modern building housing artifacts from the Acropolis. The top floor is built to be an identical size to the actual Parthenon and is situated in the same direction. When you look out the window of the museum, you can see the Acropolis out the window and can visualize where the artifacts you are seeing... More

The museum is a good way to salvage deteriorating pieces of history from the elements. The museum has many interesting artifacts and recreations. It is spacious, not crowded, very contemporary and clean. Well worth a visit.

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.
