Good museum, but the sequence of rooms was completely illogical and made it way too difficult to listen to guided recordings. Also, the website is insufficient when describing the requirement to check bags. This requirement is a violation of personal protection rights, but apparently the Greeks could care less.

The whoe idea as advertised was to Skip-the-Line. Althought I had a ticket I still had to stand in a long and confusing line to enter the museum and I am not sure I saved much time after all.

Museum is confusing (internal route). Placards are low to the ground so difficult to read unless you are in a wheelchair or short. Was crowded. Marvelous collection and well worth seeing. Fell in love with the Cycladic art

The museum was amazing! One question I would ask, what part of the ticket is skipping the line. There was no process for skipping the line. This seems to be fake. Thanks

These tickets are valid until 31 Oct, 2023.

The National Archaeological Museum of Athens is the largest archaeological museum in Greece and one of the most important museums in the world devoted to ancient Greek art. It was found at the end of the 19th century, in 1829, to house and protect antiquities from all over Greece thus displaying their historical, cultural and artistic value.
