You need a good 2-3 hours in here. There are many many exhibits to see - and almost as many guards and lookers making sure you don't touch or take photos.... However, them aside, the quality of the displays and the artefacts still makes this...More

A stunning museum and mustn't be missed. The architecture is phenomenal as it is built upon an archeological site found upon building it. The museum is laid out beautifully. It's worth getting a guide to show you the really important pieces. Notes from a wheelchair:...More

Confusing layout, and not much direction. Artefacts were amazing, but all looked the same after awhile. The place needs more direction to help people and engage people better.

Thoughtfully and creatively laid out. Allow a couple of hours, but could sprint it in 1. You will enjoy looking at the exhibits out of the day's heat. Can get up close to what you can't necessarily on the hill.

This museum is stunning. I was blown away how beautiful it was inside and outside with so many interesting architectural details that helped display the beautiful artifacts of ancient Greece. A must see and not to be missed.

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
