Brilliant layout, visited it when it first opened and much more information available now, particularly interesting were the conservation projects. Well worth 5 euros entrance fee.

“We should give the Elgin Marbles back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014

This new(ish) museum presents the history and artefacts from the Acropolis. The displays and explanations are excellent and the top floor (perfectly aligned with the original) allows you to get close to the details of the friezes that would be difficult to appreciate in situ. All they need now are the originals rather than plaster copies. If you have trouble with heights some of the glass floors might give you a problem, and ladies, be careful with what you might be revealing to the spectators on the floor below.

“Informative”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014 via mobile

Very informative. Was smaller (in terms of exhibits not building size) than I expected. Managed to see everything within ninety minutes. If you are a student remember your I.D as you get free entry!

“Built to amaze people!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

Huge museum and huge content is the best words to describe this museum. You can find a lot of finds from the Acropolis area and information about it, which culturally is very rich. Modern and well designed, this museum makes the visit easy and not tiring.

When you walk down the stairs from the street to the museum entrance, you can see the Acropolis reflected on the museum glass in a perfect alignment. Points for the architects! The second floor has a café and balcony from where you have a great view to Acropolis.

“Nice museum with great layout”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

The restauration / reproduction of the sculptures on the Parthenon.
The general layout and the floors made of glass underneath you can see the ruins.
