While at the museum if you have any problem you can refer to the people working there. You might think you are dealing with human beings but don't be fooled. Those things are machines - not intelligent machines - the stupid ones.

Visiting the Temple of Poseidon requires one hour plus drive out of Athens and a little bit of a climb from the entrance but well worth the walk Definitely the highlight of our mostly disappointing day in Athens

Not a large collection but worthwhile if you are in the area. Great display from an important part of European history. The highlights are the bronze statues. Cheap tickets is a plus (£4).

the mseum was 5 min walk from my hotel, so I couldn't avoid it. Nice , though small collection of ancient artefacts, mostly sculptures, with amazing bronze statues of Appolo, Artemis and Athena herself.. Impressive!

Small collection. Highlight is a group of cult-size bronzes discovered in the 1950s. Top level items.

Not a big collection but the pieces they show are definitely worthwhile to visit the museum. Especially the more than live size bronze statues are impressive.

An outstanding collection through the ages that is easy to to navigate and admire! The museum collection was first assembled in 1935 and then housed in the present two-storey building in 1966. The collections are chronological in order but be careful, as the start of...More

It's opened from 9 to 3 every day except Mondays. Well of course you could spend hours and hours in there, but I'd suggest you should plan for a visit of at least 2 hours.
