“Nice building ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013 via mobile

I have watched a documentary about this building and its glass floors. It was really unique how they constructed over the ruins. Besides that i was not that impressed. Istanbul archeological museum is so much better.

“A must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

This museum is a must see as it stores all the treasures from the acropolis. Because it displays mostly statues, it is designed to admit as much light as possible and its architect, Bernard Tschumi, handled the task most beautifully. The museum is careful not overwhelm with over loaded exhibits, so one does not feel exhausted when the visit is over.
