This beautifully built museum is a great addition to any visit to the acropolis. From the artefacts displayed inside, to the archaeological remains found during the museum's construction that are incorporated into the building, there is much to see and should take around 2-3 hours...More

Wonderful Museum!! Just as engaging for our teenagers as for us. Well done displays, but do they try to take pictures

The stunning showcasing of archeological finds and all things related to the Acropolis is to be applauded. Lots of explanation and some video demonstrations of what has been done and how it's done. Particularly the cleaning of the caryatids from the Erecthieon and the use...More

We visited the museum after our visit to the ancient Acropolis. Seeing the site excavation, statues and elements of the façade that have been preserved are awe inspiring. The views from the top level of the museum are brilliant, and the museum offers a café...More

What an amazing place. Take the tour to get the most of it. Even the architecture has meaning that could easily be missed.

I thought this was a wonderful museum that gave you a real sense of the art of Ancient Greece and how colorful it was. Where it missed for me was what I expected to be the highlight, the Parthenon Frieze. They have removed everything from...More

What a fantastic museum. The entrance takes you on a glass walkway over an archeological site and the collection is truly amazing, especially in conjunction with the sites on the Acropolis. The museum itself is very well run and laid out (a bit of a...More

It was nice, but we didn't feel it added any unique experience to the Acropolis visit. If you arrive on a rainy day, this could be nice.

Unless you love rock seing (sightseeing of rocks) and knowing every details on the sculpture, I found that visiting the Acropolis itself with Rick Steve's guide was way more nicer and interesting than seeing a bunch of rocks in the Museum.

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

I am planning to visit the museum next week and saw that I could purchase tickets online. However it then said I would need to collect my pre-purchased tickets at the museum's ticket desk. Does that mean I still need to wait in line? If so, is there any advantage to pre-purchasing online>

Rupan, in my view it will be good if you do Acropolis Museum first. Should take minimum 1 hour. If you are interested in learning details about Acropolis like what all they have found on site, their theories about the life... More
