New museum

Just saw a news report about the moving of aritifacts into the new museum. Will it be open in time for our trip to Athens on Jan 30?

Thanks,

Unfortunately not.

Although building is nearly finished, a lot of work remains to be done in terms of installing antiquities in their new positions and organizing the new exhibitions. As i get it, it *may* be ready till the end of 2008.

Consider instead, a visit to "National Arcaeological Museum", which has a big and endless :) collection of ancient Greek sculpture and pottery, or "Benaki Museum" which in a compact collection gets you through 2 millenniums of Greek history. Both are great.
