An excellent way to explore the history of the place. Many excellent original, ancient works of art are being exhibited in a beautifully curated space.

The museum not only presents beautifully the ancient works of art, but offers a fantastic experience of the city; excellent views of Athens (and particularly Acropolis and Parthenon), excellent use of light, excellent layout of the copies of the ancient marbles (the originals of some of them are in the British museum), excellent layout of the original ancient statues, sculptures and everyday objects, a delightful experience overall.

(I think there was a fee but very small)

The exhibits are wonderful, and just the site itself is excellent. The museum is in walking distance which means you can do both in one day. What's wonderful about the museum is that it gives the Acropolis a better context and explains in better detail what your visiting.
