We used the self guided audio provided by the museum and were able to learn about each artifact in depth. We went to the museum prior to visiting the Acropolis and it really helped better understand what we were seeing at the site

Our guide was knowledgeable, sensitive to the needs of all members of the diverse group, and extremely helpful in interpreting the historic and contemporary meanings of the ancient sites. Plus, she helped get us in and out of crowded, extremely hot spaces at a time and in a way that made our trip much more enjoyable.

We loved our tour guide Kostas! He was so knowledgable about Greece’s history, present, and future! And he was such an engaging and considerate tour guide. He really brought the tour to life and made it worth while!

We loved the caryatids and the film about the history of the Parthenon. The excavation was very interesting and we enjoyed it most. Sunny thing though. After we had some lunch and were departing from that area some security lady came up to me and asked to see my tickets. I showed them to her and then she was fine but it was very insulting.

Unveiling ancient treasures and a living archaeological site

Opened in 2007, the Athens Acropolis Museum has one of the largest collections of fascinating Greek artifacts and sculptures that were housed in the Parthenon. The primary highlight is the cavernous excavation site below the museum. Believed to be an active neighborhood consisting of sea streets, houses, and shops from around 3000 BC to the 12th century A.D., the site is a highly unique exhibit.

A journey through four captivating galleries

There are four main galleries in the museum, and you have access to all of them! The Gallery of the Slopes of the Acropolis contains objects of everyday life used over the centuries. The Archaic Gallery houses some of the oldest findings dating back to the 7th century B.C. The Parthenon Gallery features a video presentation of the Parthenon and how it was designed and built. The final gallery contains a wide variety of fabulous artifacts including the coffered ceiling of the Propylaea and sculptures from the Temple of Athena Nike. You can also spot a range of amazing portraits depicting philosophers and historical figures. If you so choose, you can learn more about these wonderful artefacts and the museum with the help of an engaging audio guide.
