The long awaited Acropolis Museum opposite the Theatris Dionisiou justifies and surpasses all the hopes of the long deprived Hellenophile. It is a fantastic building worthy of housing those Parthenon treasures still remaining in Greece. During excavations for the building, many ancient foundations were discovered which turned out to be the artisan quarter of ancient Athens. Rather than cover these up, a wonderful glass floor has been constructed that enables the visitor to see these old streets and workshops simply by looking down beneath one's feet. All the glories of the former old Parthenon Museum are on display. On the top floor, what remains in Greece of the Parthenon Friezes is on display along with reproductions of the ones in the British Museum. Coming as I do from London I experienced a real and healthy sense of shame. Never was there a better argument for the return to Greece of the originals, than this beautiful building.There is also a lovely restaurant and terrace.

They are clearly promoting Greek culture, which they should, and are doing a good job of it. This is a solid meal for lunch. Better than most museum cafes.

The acropolis museum is the most informative, interesting, and historically influential museum I've ever visited. There are art works contained within that represent the beginning of the classical period though it would be hard to know if you hadn't previously studied it. A must for anyone with a passion in Ancient Greek studies.

This was better than I imagined. The site is gorgeous, and they have done amazing work restoring the ancient temples, etc.

A great place to go after visiting the Akropolis as it explains everything about it.
Great views of the Akropolis as you look up and the restaurant is excellent, with a superb view.
