Greek antiquities housed in minimalist modern surroundings - lovely juxtaposition of old and new with the added spectacle of glass floors to gaze from above at how live was lived back then

From the moment you walk up to the museum the glass floor exposes you to a newly discovered underground city. Inside an amazing air conditioned complex full of Ancient Greek artefacts that is stunning.

I was in awe with the archeological findings. I especially loved the Caryatids. Enjoyed the view to the Parthenon.

The Acropolis Museum was a great place to go. So much history is on display. Would definitely recommend this place.

For many years, one of the main arguments regarding the possible return of the Elgin Marbles from the British Museum was a lack of a proper home in Athens for them to be properly stored and displayed. Regardless of the outcome of this long-running saga,...More

I was more impressed by the view to the Parthenon and the building itself than the artefacts. I believe there are more interesting museums and historical sites in Athens.However we had a nice coffee at the cafeteria.

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

I am planning to visit the museum next week and saw that I could purchase tickets online. However it then said I would need to collect my pre-purchased tickets at the museum's ticket desk. Does that mean I still need to wait in line? If so, is there any advantage to pre-purchasing online>

We went here twice and didn't see much of a line either time. You may just want to purchase your tickets when you get there.
Is a ticket to the acropolis museum automatically included in a ticket to the acropolis?
