So much of Athens is rubble, buried or has been built on top of. Yet you can see so much of the ancient culture here at the museum. Statues, weapons of a bye gone era, stories of philosophers, mathematicians, astronomers, astrologers & healers can be viewed. A nice little tour

This wonderful documenting of the apogee of treasures from antiquity took over three hours of our time, and a marvellous spend it was. Ascending through the Acropolis Slopes Gallery was great, with displays of artefacts found within Sanctuaries on the said slopes. Dramatic are double life size sculptures of figures elevated on their plinths. It was marvellous seeing originals of five of the Caryatids, the sixth still residing in the British Museum. Undoubtedly the highlight was the top floor with its Parthenon Gallery. Before enjoying the displays we viewed the excellent 15 minute audiovisual, which is highly recommended. Metopes and frieze are superbly exhibited around the outside of the hall as they appeared on the Parthenon. So many sculptures are to be enjoyed, outlining the Panathenaic Procession and the Pediments’ contents. Originals are not overly plentiful and tellingly plaster copies stand out in highlighting that the space is there for hopefully when, and not if, the originals are repatriated from the British Museum to their rightful home of Athens.

Words cannot describe this Museum. A must visit. But please budget plenty of time. Even a 5-6 hour visit might require another one!

As you enter the museum, see the impressive glass floor showcasing ruins of an ancient settlement buried below and gear yourself up for the first gallery, where you’ll get an insider’s view of everyday life in ancient Athens. Discover as you gradually ascend to the next floor, where the exhibits will guide you through the journey of the city’s transition to democracy. Listen amazing stories around from monsters, heroes, gods and iconic representations of the human body, you’ll follow the evolution of ancient art.
