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

Our hotel manager recommended visiting this museum and we're glad we did. Best surprise was upstairs in the room with the four bronze statues, especially the "Athena of Piraeus"; in our opinion one of the best statues in Greece. The adjacent amphitheatre will make this...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.

Hei I have tried 3 times to answer. IT is closed for renovation. Check Athens nett pages for many other museums in this area. Sorry for the delay. enjoy your stay in Hellas. Paul.
