I know that it's somewhat blasphemous here, but I didn't love the Acropolis Museum. I found it lifeless and extremely NOT child-friendly. I didn’t learn anything there. Now, much of that was due to trying to wrangle a toddler who had no business being there. We spent an hour or so walking through lots of old, white statues and trying desperately to keep our toddler quiet so as to not disturb the reverent feeling of the place. If you have kids or aren’t really into Ancient Greece, I’d skip this. There wasn't any type of storytelling to pull you into the past. Instead it was room after room of marble carvings. We didn’t go with a guide, and that may have made a difference. There is a nice cafe with outdoor seating and a view of the Acropolis. One cool aspect is that the museum is built over an archaeological site, so you can look down through the floors at a real excavation. I'm sure if you're a history buff or archaeologist, this museum is wonderful, but as a parent of a toddler it was a waste of my time.

A "must visit" and "must see" for all the people!!! Amazing art through the centuries and a civilization that cannot be unrecognised. The ancient Greeks were far beyond their time!!!

The museum really highlights the beauty and the value of the Acropolis, a unique and top-notch archaeological destination.

This museum has many artifacts to see with great statues and is very informative of how Greek life was in the beginning.

If you are in Athens don't miss visiting the Acropolis Museum, it's one of the best ancient museums in Europe with a modern touch.

you have to go here after visiting the Acropolis - absolutely amazing stuff. shame you cant take pics everywhere inside? but understandable. give back the marbles - doesnt make sense for them to not be here!! and the outside cafe with views is lovely and fairly reasonable. skidding pidgeons are funny too!

We have visited Athens before, but this was our first visit to this museum. It is a beautiful building with striking views. We learned so much by watching the excellent video presentations at the museum.

Nice place to visit if u r interested in Greek history. Museum Chronicles the origin of the civilization, Greek-Persian wars and eventual taking over of Greek religion space by Christianity. Don't miss the ruins over which the museum is built. The glass floor of the museum gives you a sneak peek into the same.

This is one of the best archeology museums I've ever visited. The layout gives you a strong physical sense of what appeared where on the Parthenon. It's easy to quickly grasp the history and the importance of various aspects of the structures. Several videos in multiple languages give you a quick overview. Spend a couple of hours here and you'll get so much more out of your visit to the actual site. Otherwise, you definitely need a guide for the site. TIP: The museum is open at night and a lot less crowded.
