For only a fiver it is worth visiting to put into words what is not written at the Acropolis but I was maybe slightly underwhelmed by it. Still definitely go after a visit to the Acropolis site.

The Acropolis itself is stunning enough but the Museum is a must see as well. This modern museum is built to be light and airy and it certainly achieves its aims. You get so close to the exhibits you can see every detail. Check out the back of the Caryatids with their plated hair, amazing and there is plenty of... More

The museum is beautiful down to the smallest detail. It is best to hire a guide so you don't miss out on anything. Allow a several hours to visit. Full of rich history and amazing artifacts.

We spent 3 or 4 hours here and felt we could have gone back. Lovely new museum. Great display giving a real understanding of the Parthenon marbles and a wide range of stone from Ancient Greece stretching from the 6th century BC to the Roman period. Very friendly staff who are clearly set up and ready to answer even the... More

OK, its only my 9th or 10th visit. Every time its becoming more interesting, deploying more images and fantasies of Αncient Greece. I perish myself in scenes and events that took part in more than 2.500 years in the same area of Athens

We really enjoyed visiting this museum before heading over to the Acropolis. It summarized Greek history and the history of the Acropolis as you went up the museum's floors. It culminated with the top floor being a in-the-round display of how the Partheon originally looked. Very well designed and informative!

we did the tour with a guide and had limited time to review the exhibits; so if you want to closely examine the extensive display allow plenty of time.

This museum is definitely worth an hour or two of your time while you are in Athens. It was recently completed (2010), and has a very modern feel to it that is extremely tourist friendly. I would suggest starting at the top level with the movie and then working your way down. Also, be sure to take advantage of the... 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.
