This is a modern museum situated above ancient ruins , a good place to study the wonderful statutes and carving in detail especially on a wet or very hot day

One of the best in Athens so you can do Acropolis site early in the morning when it is cooler then the museum as the day get warmer. It has got nice cafe for quick bite.

You cannot go to Athens and miss this amazing museum. It's absolutely breathtaking! I've been there two hours before closing time, and honestly would've stayed much longer.

Lots of useful history and information with some brilliant pieces. The staff are helpful. There are restrictions on where to take photos which is not clearly sign posted which makes it a little awkward. A must see though.

Like no other museums, the greek museums feel like you're in the heart of the beginning of western civilisation. This particular one is a modern building built to view the Parthenon and host the priceless exhibits of the Acropolis. A real unforgettable experience!

The building itself is very impressive, with a fantastic architecture. But the exposition is quite traditional, showing an overwhelming amount of individual artifacts that are difficult to relate... It's ok to go there and stroll around (for 5€), but it's not needed if the aim is to visit Akropolis.

A light, airy, well thought out museum. The marbles room with full view of the Acropolis is stunning!

Very clean and modern with interesting artifacts from around the area, we had a tour guide, but I think many of the exhibits were self explanatory and easy to navigate, even in English.

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighbourhood Profile
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 up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centrepiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
