Questions about International Museum Day, May 18

As it turns out my trip in Athens will overlap International Museum Day on May 18.

It's my understanding (I hope I'm right) that all museums and monuments are free on that day....Can you guys recommend which might be best to take advantage of ?

In other words, which attractions are higher priced that would be free on that day.

If it makes any sense and is practical, we might save the more expensive attractions (and some euros) for that day..

Can anyone suggest which attractions to see, and/or in what order.

Thanks for any advice or suggestions

Keep in mind that the museums will be VERY CROWDED on this free day.

My advice is to spend the 7 Euros and see the National Archeological Museum when its not as busy. (Don't go on Sunday, its 1/2 closed down because of budget cuts to staffing).

And, the Benaki is always free on Thursdays. Go early, right when they open! A must see.

I agree with MattC.

All four Benaki museums are free on Thursdays but with different admission hours

Entrance will be free until 8/7/2014
