This attraction is included in the fee for the Acropolis. We found that by visiting all of the sights included in the pass, our appreciation and knowledge base increased measurably.
We decided to explore the paths of the cemetery before entering the museum gem. We were grateful to have our travel book. We found much of the printed information incomplete and even confusing since some of the signs were orientated incorrectly. Most significant to us was the ruin of the Pompeion with evidence of a massive courtyard. This was the beginning point of the ancient Panathenaic procession, a holy parade that included hauling a huge ship up the Sacred Way to the Acropolis.
The museum is small, but well done. It includes artifacts relating to burial practices which, like modern times, reflect significant social customs.
