Sure the Acropolis, the 2500 year old ruins of a city high on a rock, is worth seeing. But it is greatly enhanced by its contemporary companion, the Acropolis Museum. What a fantastic museum! The architecture, the creative interior design and, of course, all the artifacts and historical information presented are truly phenomenal. It opened just four years ago and is a must see for anyone visiting Athens. As you approach the entrance you can view ongoing excavation through the glass floor. We thought 3 hours would be sufficient but we were there for 4 and a half. That included an excellent lunch with a view of the Acropolis. As we left the museum I found myself compelled to thank the guard for the amazing visit to his place of employment. Yes, visit the Acropolis but see and learn so much more at the Acropolis Museum. Definitely get the ticket for both at the slightly reduced price.
