Being such a historic city, there is a lot to see in the National Archeological Museum of Athens.

  • One of the best collections of Ancient Greek art in the world. Particularly known for the wonderful large-scale bronzes in the collection, which are very rare objects you don’t find in many museums. The horse and boy jockey is worth the price of admission alone! It’s not a flashy new museum, but all the better for that. Simply an incredible collection you’d be crazy to miss if you’re in Athens!

  • Many of the greatest achievements in ancient Greek sculpture and painting are housed here in the most important museum in Greece. Artistic highlights from every period of its ancient civilization, from Neolithic to Roman times, make this a treasure trove beyond compare. With a massive renovation completed, works (more than 11,000 of them) that have languished in storage for decades are now on view, reorganized displays are accompanied by enriched English-language information, and the panoply of ancient Greek art appears more spectacular than ever. While the classic culture that was the grandeur of the Greek world no longer exists—it died, for civilizations are mortal—it left indelible markers in all domains, most particularly in art, and many of its masterpieces are on show here. The museum's most celebrated display is the Mycenaean Antiquities. Here are the stunning gold treasures from Heinrich Schliemann's 1876 excavations of Mycenae's royal tombs: the funeral mask

  • Athens has a lot of history and a lot of beautiful and amazing places to visit. The national archaeological museum of Athens is one of the best places I had the chance of going to! These is so much history in the wall of the museum and there is so much so see and read there. The museum is surprisingly huge! It's deceiving on the outside as the museum wraps all around the building in a giant circle. There is also an upstairs section to view as well. The statues and models are absolutely breathtaking and have detailed descriptions. I really enjoyed the break down of the museum and there is a worker in each room to answer question you may have (best to their knowledge) and to keep anyone from causing damage or harm to anything in the room. There are other parts of the world and power nations dedicated to certain rooms as well such as Egypt and Rome. The hours are pretty good as well. They are accurate on the web site but you want to make sure you have at least 2 or 3 hours to comfortably see and experience the museum in its entirety. You do have to pay to get in but the ticket is only 5 euro (prices might be higher depending on the time of year) be careful towards closing time! They don't play around. They close the gift shop 20 minutes early and try to have everyone out and the doors locked 10 minutes before closing! Over all a great place to take your friends or family to learn some amazing history of the area and even other places around the world!

  • A stunning collection! Much better than the architectural Acropolis museum. This museum is well worth a whole day visit. Take your time and savour the beautiful exhibits. There are lots of places to sit and rest if you are getting tired! Pop down to the cafe in the delightful cloister garden to rest weary feet and have a bite to eat. Then explore the rest of the museum. Museum staff are very friendly. Shop is only disappointing part!

  • Fantastic museum lots to see. There is a great deal of pottery here and we'll organized collections. Beautiful building and a nice cafe, but disappointing gift shop. The cafe is nice with area to sit outside amount some exhibits. Can get a bit noisy if there are large groups of children.
