You can see the artifacts from the Akropolis. The building itself is very nice. Personally a must when you have visited the Akropolis too.

The design of the museum took natural light into total consideration. It is all clean lines and large windows which does not take away from the greatness of the focus...the Acropolis and it's antiquities. A must see while you stop in Athens!!!

best to visit before visiting the actual acropolis. In that case you understand better what you see.

This museum is beautiful and you can learn so much. I did the Friday evening tour and really enjoyed that. It's only 5 euros to get in so everyone should make it a part of their Athens itinerary!

Great combination between modern architecture and antiques. The collection offered is very wide and this is definitely a great place to understand a lot about Greece and ancient Mythology. It is however sad that there are no audio guides.

Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient
temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small
wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer
numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely
pedestrianised Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between
the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth
climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges
with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the

Not for the museum; we used Rick Steves audio guide for the Acropolis itself when we went up and learned so much about it. They have 2 movies that play in the museum that give you more info on what you're looking at. They... More
