    an audioguide that can be downloaded and listened to on the phone is useless when there are groups of totally unruly pupils who can't listen to the explanations properly It's a pity, because the museum is well designed, but reading it all becomes tedious.

    Ticket purchase was great, very easy, but I had issues with my phone (dropped it and quit working) so getting the actual tickets at the venue was a hassle

    Love the museum. I was in awe! Crüe design of the museum itself is a master piece that ties ancient history with modern design in a harmonic way. Audio guide is also great. A great place to explore and to learn

    What a great experience! Audio tour was very helpful. My number one recommendation would be to TAKE YOUR TIME! Audio tour doesn't cover everything and there is so much to see. As long as you don't have time restrictions, take it all in and read. Cafe was also nice and comparably priced to town. Underground excavations were also a plus.

    Beautiful building! Artefacts presented so well with lots of space to move between them. We visited immediately after visiting the Acropolis and the museum provided so much information and detail. The excavation site was fascinating! A visit is highly recommended

    Start your skip-the-line tour of the Acropolis Museum with an audio guide playing on your personal smartphones. Discover fascinating stories about the Golden Age of Athens and explore its beautiful ancient Greek art exhibits. As you walk on the glass floor and try to take in the sight of an ancient settlement buried below, you will arrive at the first gallery. Here, you will learn about everyday life in ancient Athens, getting to know its customs and traditions. The bygone wedding customs and surgery practices will make you realize how far we've come.

    As you walk up the higher floor, you'll gradually explore the city's transition to democracy. Along with it, you'll follow the evolution of ancient art in Greece. You'll visit the Parthenon, a former temple dedicated to the goddess Athena. Engrossing depictions of Greek mythology on the metopes and pediments of the temple will leave you in awe. Your last stop in the tour will allow you to take in the classical period of Greek art. Marveling at the most famed artworks in ancient Athens, your audio guide will fill you in on the significance of the iconic Caryatids. This audio tour will be the perfect companion for the enthusiastic history buff in you to know more about the tales of an ancient past.
