Really neat museum with lots of history that you can see and touch. However, I would really have loved to be able to put a lot of it in context with more English language descriptions of the artifacts. If you are a sights-only type of visitor who likes history but doesn't really like reading, then this will be your cuppa... More

Being a real history freak, I have visited several museums all over Europe, America and the Far (China etc.) and Middle East (Mesopotamia, Palmyra etc.). My verdict: the Acropolis museum is in my top 5 list together with the Louvre and the British museum. It is the living proof of the long and glorious history of the Greek nation, cradle... More

This museum is the proof that Greeks were, are and will be people that can achieve great things. Not only the history that is revealed is incomparable, but the building itself is a monument. Truly a great job has been done here. The statues are exposed in a way that natural light and clever array produce a result which is... More

It's a museum that brings you straight to the atmosphere of fine ancient constructions. It's facing its native spot, the Acropolis with the Parthenon, so it's like a natural sequence. The Athens light is all around you and the thematic sets , the exhibits are lit by this natural source, the description is really informative, there's lot of space to... More

Great museum and great exhibits. Watch video presentation to understand the greatness of the Acropolis. Take your time and enjoy every single moment there. Coffe break in the restaurant with view to the Parthenon is just unique.

I visited this museum because a French friend of mine wanted to see it and take some photos. We found out that photos are permitted in certain areas only. The view of Acropolis from the café is excellent. Unique statues of cores are everywhere and one of them shows its hair dressing (you see her from behind). I did not... More

In my opinion, the Acropolis Museum is one of the best in world! It is not only the exhibits but also its location right under Acropolis with a view to Parthenon. Don't forget to visit the restaurant at the roof garden!

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.
