A must-visit museum in Athens that offers a lot of interesting sculptures and history facts. The only negative is the rude staff that gets aggressive with the people that take pictures in places that it isn't allowed, although there are no signs indicating that it is forbidden in some places. A few signs would have helped.

Huge museum, beautiful statues. The top floor is based on the real size of the Acropolis. Amazing the view and how the people could do this back then.

This is a relatively new museum just below the Acropolis. Not only are the displays interesting but the building itself is something to see. It is very light and airy which makes for a relaxed visit and received an award when new. This museum is dedicated to the Acropolis and the items which were found during excavations. The third floor... More

It is located near syntagma square on the "rock" of Acropolis. It opens early and i suggest if you want to avoid the kids from school and the tourists get there at 9. Many views, places to sit and contemplate. A cafe, a library and some times a lecture which we " fell" into nd enjoyed.

Before you visit the Parthenon, go to the Acropolis museum. Much of the original of artifacts are here. What a great museum this is. You can see most in about two hours.

Ya, I know - it's a fabulous museum first. The top floor has been shifted from the base of the building so that it is parallel to the acropolis. The floor then has the same number of columns and layout as the Parthenon with either original or replicas of all known parts of the carvings from the Parthenon displayed as... More

Do not miss going to this modern, light, spacious, great value museum containing an amazing range of exhibits and wonderful views through the areas of glass floor to the remains of buildings discovered when the museum was built. The open air cafe with great views of the Acropolis provides a welcome opportunity for drink and food during your visit.

Terrific new museum. The top floor is the place to get a good understanding of the size and construction of the Parthenon. The cafe is good too.

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighbourhood Profile
Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely pedestrianised Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centrepiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
