Visit-a few questions

After over a decade of attempts, it appears I may have cobbled together a trip to Athens. It'll be very brief-full days in Athens on Sunday and Monday. I've gone to the museum websites, and have a sense of what's open and when, but am a little puzzled. A couple of the websites state "From the 1st of April open M-S 8-1500" but don't say anything about schedule before the first of April(Temple of Haphaestus, for example); I also can't find opening times/days for the Roman Forum, so if anyone has any information, I'd be appreciative. Finally, I'll probably be in Athens March 2 and 3; I didn't see these days on the holidays closed list, but if anyone has any insight as to whether or not museums, the Acropolis, etc may be closed those days, I'd appreciate it.

The Acropolis Museum is closed on Mondays - go there on Sunday.

The Benaki Museum is also closed on Mondays.

The National Archaeological Museum is open on Mondays, but its hours are from 13:00 - 20:00

Those are the three major museums: if you are interested in any of the others you should be able to find their opening hours on their websites.

The Temple of Hephaestus (Thission) is, as greek-traveller says, inside the ancient Agora, whose winter opening hours are 08:00 - 15:00. I can't find anything about the Roman Agora either, but 08:00 - 15:00 are the opening hours of all the ancient sites, I believe.
