  • Magnificent exposition and collection of the Greek history. A must see when in Athens! To be honest too much (beautiful and interesting objects and stories) to cover in 1 day or visit. Maybe it's necessary to make choices. We did Acropolis, Benaki and this museum in 3 days. To be honest, though we love culture and history, it appeared to become a bite too much ... Too much vases, statues, ... .

  • We went there with our tour group after seeing the Acropolis. Amazing history. The museum was beautiful with the statues and wonderful gold ornaments(1 to 2hrs) There is a small park outside the entrance of the museum with a cafe in the corner of the park. There are also stores across the street to get less expensive snacks and water.

  • When I visit Athens i always allot 4 hours for this museum. The artifacts contained within are one of a kind and are very well presented. The cafe is set amongst ancient statues and gardens. I also enjoy the contemporary exhibits presented in the garden. The food in the face is good and fairly priced.

  • A must see while visiting Athens. Everything is well placed and descriptions are in English as well. Ticket is 10euro per adult and it 5 euro for kids. The shop felt a bit empty. Easy to get there by bus.

  • We were sad because there were rooms closed of with no explanation as to why. It was large and amazing. Plan at least 5 hours to see everything. It's wonderful that so much has been preserved for so long.
