Acropolis Museum, Athens Reviews

  • Great museum, beautifully arrange and the size is just perfect. This museum will give you an extensive introduction to the history of the acropolis and ancient Athens as well as explanations about the different monuments, sculptures, functions and more. There is a suggested route through the exhibitions that is very recommended and easy to follow. On the top floor all the sides of the Parthenon are exhibited and the glass windows site the place itself so that you can orientate. I suggest visiting here before the actual acropolis to benefit most from the experience

  • The ticket price is very good, only 5€. It's a very nice and beautiful exhibit. Is good to research the story before you go. In the top floor you can watch a short documentary that talk about the Parthenon. I think that is better to watch it first, so you can appreciate even more the sculptures in exhibit and you would have an idea of how it used to look and where they were located. The prices in the shop were reasonable. Is a great option to cool down after walking in the heat

  • To be quite honest, I was a little disappointed. I was really expecting to see an greater and bigger exhibit. With that being said the collection is great. We have to take in consideration the time and effort this took to put together. The staff is really not friendly. Actually quite rude. My favorite part is how exposed & close you can get to the items. Hard to believe these are so ancient. Beautiful location with smart views to the acropolis & good juxtaposition between the modern & the ancient.

  • Modern, large and spacious with a large collection of ancient relics, many well restored. Photography is not allowed in some areas (on the ground and first floor right side) but not clearly seen. The movie on the Parthenon ( top floor ) is good. I think more such movies / visuals will make the museum more “alive” and interesting. The Lego model is also really cute - check the detailed notes. The restaurant and outside terrace is great. Note the opening times as they vary on some days.

  • Great place to visit! Amazing for visiting with children, even small ones. We will definitely go back again. The admission price is low ( children go free), nice coffeteria with good coffee and good salads. Also nice gift shops with books also in English and other languages. Great view of Acropolis! We spend about 2 hours being under the pressure of time.
