Acropolis Museum, Athens Reviews - Write a Review
Really modern museum with good quality displays and an theatre/cinema area with an interesting film (in English and Greek) all about the Parthenon. We went a couple of days after visiting the Acropolis, but is maybe worth going before to understand more about the Parthenon in particular before seeing it in person. Most of the museum is dedicated to the statues and decorative stones that were once on the Parthenon and to me they all look pretty much the same, so it was definitely interesting to see but we found a couple of hours was plenty for the whole thing. There's a little area that's suitable for younger kids, including a Lego model of the acropolis, but not sure how long they'd be entertained for. Overall well worth a visit, and there's a large cafe if you need food. It's a great air conditioned option for a middle of the day activity when it's too hot for anything else.
Really modern museum, user friendly and with an amazing exhibition of masterpieces, and the price it's acceptable. If you're lucky you'll find a guide that tells you about the culture and how the pieces were found and reconstructed or simply preserved. It has a free fee for disabled and in case you need it will be a person looking after you. The restaurant gets crowded because of the seight of the acropolis
Well designed, thoughtfully laid-out and beautifully presented, this is a fascinating journey through the rich history of the ancient city of Anthens, her people and the goddess Athena, after whom the city is named. Look down, up and all around to be sure not a miss a single, artful detail. Take the time to view the video presentations for a comprehensive, albeit disturbing account, of how the temple became the ruins of today through years of destruction and systematic pillaging. Gorgeous views of the ancient ruins from the restaurant. Family friendly with a great changing facility for infants and resting room for children. Even the gift shop is enjoyable. Photography is not permitted on most floors, ask if unsure. Not to be missed.
Quite a cool and modern museum telling the story and different stages about the acropolis. I’d suggest going to the museum first before heading to the acropolis. You will appreciate it much better. The museum is open till 10pm on Friday so take advantage of that. Entry is very cheap at €5.
This the highlight of our recent trip to Athens. The museum is very modern, air conditioned and has a great range of items on display. We visited on a guided tour, but would say that the museum can easily be navigated independently given that everything was clearly labelled with good amounts of background information. I would have loved to have been able to spend longer reading to fully appreciate all that was on show. Definitely worth a visit.
