“A total must see experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

The amount of history that is so well preserved and displayed is massive. Art that runs through thousands of years and a vast number of cultures.

“Amazing Museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

This is one of my favourite museum and a must see while in Athens. There are tons of roman statues, lots of history on Mycenean culture and lots more. There is also a beautiful cafe with a nice courtyard to sit for a while.
Only problem with the courtyard, it was filled with smokers.

“Outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013

I would rate this as one of the best of its type in the world. It is a must see museum, and its probably best to visit before you go to the Acropolis. That is because there are models of the major phases that have occurred, plus a very good video that runs constantly, simply changing the language.

The only small irritation is that photos are allowed in only some areas, and these are hard to identify, but if you get your camera out in the wrong area, you will very quickly be pounced upon.

“A must! Do not miss it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

This museum is the most important museum in the world (of its kind).
Hosts antiquities from all over Greece. (Prehistory and on).
You visit the museum and cannot believe the brilliant exhibits that are dating even
from the eleventh century BC!!!
Very impressive!
