The main collection on the upper floor contains relics from the Parthenon. What mind-boggling history. Sit through the 10 minute video before touring. It will help you understand what you're seeing. Good AC on a hot day. Great views of Parthenon. Don't miss it!

This is a world-class museum (and I come from DC, which sets a pretty high bar with the Smithsonian Museums). The structure, which is lovely, complements the Acropolis perfectly, and the contents of the museum provide a comprehensive history that's an indispensable foundation as you...More

The museum itself is ok, but all of the excavations outside are extremely fascinating. They also built glass over the ruins so you can walk over them. Lots of neat stuff to see here!

5 euros is totally worth it, especially the Lego version of Acropolis. It helps you imagine what the ruins actually look like back in the days. Also you can read some books in the gift shop for more background. Excellent musuem to finish your Acropolis...More

My wife and I are art historians. We visited this museum with our teenage children. In short this is one of the most well thought out and designed museums in the world. Well done to the people of Greece!!!!

a follow up to visiting the acropolis, this is must-see place to understand fully what was once the temple devoted to Athena. the description accompanying the displays are extremely helpful and tells a coherent narrative.

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

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