Museum and the property was vast and well maintained.
Because of the holiday and strike, we only have one day left to visit the museum. What we did not know was it only opened till 3pm, and they started to kick you out 20 min before, the staff also chatted too loud, a leisurely operated museum.

This is a fascinating museum with a great display of artifacts from all over Greece, including treasures from Mycenae & Olympia. In addition to the Mask of Agamemnon (which is now being disputed because of dating, it may not be his death mask), there are other gold artifacts, pottery, and bronze artifacts on display. Room after room to wander through and enjoy all these antiquities.

There was a special exhibit of artifacts from The Antikythera shipwreck, from the 1st century BC.

We took a taxi from Monastiraki Square in the Plaka area for only 4 EU each way (we shared the taxi with another couple). You could take the Metro and walk a few blocks, but the taxi was a good deal.

We only had time for a short visit, but this museum is a very worthwhile stop while you are in Athens.

The imposing, impressive National Archaeological Museum is a veritable treasure trove of Greek artistic and archaeological history. Unfortunately some of the wings were closed on the afternoon we visited (missed the Egyptian section), but the immense sculpture exhibit and the Mycenean gold exhibit were stunning and poignant. We were on a short visit to Athens, so we went only once. The museum is definitely worth several visits if one has the time.

This museum has lots of things to see and if you are in Athens you should see this one. It is huge and they explain what you are looking at in English. They have a Egyption display, and some artifacts from Santorini. We also saw the remains of a ship wreck that contained a sextant type machine. Loved it

we were particulary interested in the huge collection of gold objects in the Egyptian area and also the artifacts from Santorini as we were about to visit there.
