Visited this museum for the first time right after it opened. LOVED it. One of the best museums I have ever seen. We have visited twice since then. It is worth every penny and worth a second and third visit.

Firstly , I was not expecting such a modern architectural style . It looks nice the museum besides the excavations underground are quite interesting ! One of the remarkable things was a video showing the restoration process of one Caryatid. It is impressive the breakthrough laser technology employed by the experts . The Lego reconstitution of Akropolis is amazing !... More

Nice museum that contains a lot of herms and statues of the Acropolis. Especially the third floor is interesting: you'll find an impression of the sculptures of the Parthenon. For who's interested in parallels: you'll find the same amount of columns.

One of the best museums I have been to where I came out knowing ten times more than when I entered! Very organized and very rich with knowledge and history. The descriptions of most of the displays were very intriguing and put your imagination to work! I stayed here longer than expected and had an amazing experience visualizing the past!

Found the whole experience excellent and just 6 euros to get in as well which represents excellent value for money. They just need all the bits from the Parthenon returning now in order to make their collection complete (i.e. Elgin Marbles!) It's a bit embarrassing sitting watching the film about the history of the Acropolis and realising that the British... More

It is undoubtedly a great museum. A must see. We chose to have a private guide for all of the historical sites and the info gleaned from her was amazing. Info that has stayed in our brain!! The museum is very well "signed"...with pertinent info. The relationship between the museum and the buildings on the Acropolis....architectural speaking...is amazing. Find info... More

Full of history that gives a great background to the Acropolis. Highly recommend to visit this attraction before visiting the actual Acropolis.

Beautifully designed museum with a fascinating collection of exhibits, the star attraction for me was the Caryatids, beautifully restored and extremely impressive.

The exhibits are organised and situated in a way you can easily keep up with the historic facts. It is a spacious building, and this makes your visiting relaxable. You should also try a cup of coffe of the museum's coffe-shop, as it has a very nice quality.

I visited the museum, it was so well organized, fab building, good information about exhibits. Video to watch on top floor. Lovely relaxing restaurant, there was a harp player when I visited 11 January, lunch time, lovely feel to it and rain poring down outside. Professional set up and only 5 euros to visit!

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.
