The Acropolis Museum is an archaeological museum focused on the findings of the archaeological site of the Acropolis of Athens. It is built on pilings over ancient ruins and has glass floors so you can actually see the ruins. The museum was built to house artifacts associated with the Acropolis from the Greek Bronze Age to Byzantine Greece. The statues... More

A must see in Athens. The museum took 30 years to be built but the result is astonishing. The natural light allows the masterpieces to stand in glory.

Well designed museum building; allows maximum light, uses less articulate lighting. Great preservation of things found in excavations. The most amazing thing I saw was a trio of young women educating a group of 15 children who were not more 3-4 years old. Kudos to the management to allow them in and the girls for handling toddlers inside a place... More

Modern museum. Very interesting, open space. Must-have! Souvenirs are available on first floor. Bad mobile signal inside the museum. For children you can buy nice books of Greece history on several languages: russian, french, english, Italian, german, greek. Cafe on top floor inside and cafe on top open terrace with nice view on Acropolis.

If you don't know what this building looks like and you try to find it on foot, make sure you have a good map. Street signs are poor and the museum itself is completely in signed (not even in Greek). We almost walked past thinking it was a council building. When you get there head straight to the top floor... More

This is something you should not skip when in athens! The museum is modern and beautiful designed. The top floor is a mirror image to the exact placement and position of the Parthenon so you get a feel of the exact size of the temple since you are not allowed inside the actual Parthenon itself. The restaurant is also a... More

The most astounding thing about this museum is that it is built over excavations. And it's a reminder that Athens is layers upon layers of history under your feet... as you walk through the museum on thick glass floors that let you see roads and storehouses below.

Complements very well the Acropolis. Very modern in design and beautifull lighting with the outsde sun. Must see the 2 minifilms first. We had 2 baklavas and tee and hot chocolates at the bar at the ground floor. They also were divine!

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.
