I especially liked those empty places of the exhibitions where some of the monuments of Parthenon and Acropolis that were stolen should be! The technique used for watching the exhibitions it is extraordinary!It feels like the exhibits are walking among the people and not the...More

We visited the Acropolis early in the morning to avoid more crowded conditions later in the day. From there we walked down to the Acropolis Museum. The Acropolis is impressive, but it is incomplete without a visit to the Museum. This contains numerous artifacts from...More

A Do Not Miss while in Athens! This contemporary museum houses many finds from the Acropolis. You probably know that the Brits took much back to London, but what has been found since and not plundered by various cultures is present in this museum. Very...More

This museum is very well thought out and adds a lot to your appreciation for the Acropolis and the Parthenon. The upper floor is laid out as a replica of the Parthenon that you walk around. All the statues and reliefs are on display as...More

This is a stunning museum. It gets very busy. The layout is spacious and, like the rest of the visitor attractions has good English exhibit information. There's a lot of history here..... and the museum is sympathetic to the Parthenon and through cleverly designed structure...More

A visit is a must after seeing the Acropolis. Entry is not included in the 7 sites ticket for Acropolis and nearby ruins. A very well laid out and presented Museum. Incredible history and artefacts restored and displayed. Great value for money.

A really good adjunct to a visit to the Acropolis. It is very near the Acropolis. Go early or late. We did the Acropolis late one afternoon and the museum the following morning: that worked well.

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

Not for the museum; we used Rick Steves audio guide for the Acropolis itself when we went up and learned so much about it. They have 2 movies that play in the museum that give you more info on what you're looking at. They... More

We paid for a multi-ticket for all the main attractions but I think just the museum was only 5 Euro.
