Create an itinerary including Acropolis Museum
Established to preserve the rich heritage of ancient Greece, Acropolis Museum brings together thousands of artifacts found at the world-famous ancient citadel located on a rocky outcrop above Athens. Opened in 2009 just a short walk from this heritage-listed archaeological site, the museum exhibits nearly 4,000 objects, including items formerly held in storage or displayed by foreign museums. The collection focuses on statues from the 5th century BCE, widely regarded as the finest examples of ancient artistic achievement. The museum building, a major tourist attraction in itself, features exhibit spaces designed to give each artifact a clear historical context. Finish your visit at the second-floor restaurant, which offers panoramic views of the city's historical hills.

  • Really interesting museum and perfect preparation for viewing the Parthenon. Would recommending visiting each floor and seeing the history of each of the temples on the Acropolis.

  • Lots of artifacts recovered from the Acropolis to see but let down by the lack of information on many of them. Still worth a visit though and some interesting things to see in a very unique building.

  • I was very positively surprised by this museum. First of all: the architecture is amazing. It is very open, bright and modern and there are features that amazed me. Secondly, it has a very impressive collection of ancient pieces found in and around Athens and the acropolis. They are telling a clear and concise story. Don’t miss and definitely visit the excavation site after leaving the museum. It was a great experience.
  • This museum is my favorite museum that I have visited so far (and I have visited quite a few around the world). It is designed really well. The rooms feel spacious and airy even when they are crowded. The exhibits are well labeled and explained. There are videos explaining major themes. Very well done! I would like to see an audio guide in the future to reduce time spent in reading text.
