The New Acropolis Museum is a great addition to a day at the Acropolis. The museum houses many of the treasures and statues found at the Acropolis. Recommend going with a tour guide who can help point out the interesting statues and information. With such a wide range of history and uses for the Acropolis over the decades the information can get muddled together. The museum was built on top of old ruins and has many clear floors so you can see them underneath. Highlight was the statues/pillars from the Porch of the Caryatids of the Erecthion, you can get up right close to them. The other highlight is the view from the top floor of the Acropolis and Parthenon and while inside the museum top floor you can walk around and view all the sculptures that would have been on the Parthenon itself.

This archaeological museum is the best place to start your Athens sightseeing adventure. I did it in the reverse order. Had I toured the museum first, I would have had a better understanding of what I saw at Acropolis. This is a 14,000 square metre museum, with over 4,000 objects from Acropolis on display. This beautiful museum opened in 2009. Through the many outer windows, you can look at Acropolis and the city of Athens below. It houses many statues, sculptures (of goddesses and gods, marble statues of men and young women, manual workers, horses, horse riders, horses and chariots, lions, lioness, a triple-bodied monster, and other animals and mythical creatures, terracotta statuettes, 92 reproduced Pentelic marble metopes (square carved plaques) of the Parthenon), sculpture decorated pediments, pottery, cast copies of pieces stolen and on display in foreign countries and private collections, and many other artefacts. It was built on top of the unearthed remains of an ancient Athenian district. Besides being able to see it part of it through the open area, other portions can be viewed through the glass over above the remains. It shows the base of former buildings, a well, and waterways. There are signs beside the majority of the museum’s collection, explaining or naming what you are looking at. Much of the museum is devoted to the Goddess Athena.

Most of the pieces on display are fragments of the original, or copies thereof.

It is easy to spend three hours here if you try to read most of the excellent information displayed.

This was one of our main reasons for visiting Athens. To be able to browse among relics from B.C. was fantastic. For only 8 euros! We spent hours and certainly missed some fine things. We enjoyed being able to see over the excavation site. What a stroke of architectural brilliance. Our visit would not have been complete without this visit.

If you're working your way through the streets and up the Acropolis, checking out the museum gives you a break from the direct sun and heat. It has rave reviews so we went, but my personal preference is to see the sites outside. There is some useful information and access to air conditioning and clean bathrooms to. Worth it for 5 euro.

A must do to understand the History of the Acropolis. Sadly the British took some of the better pieces to the British Museum in London (as they do!) Extremely well laid out and user friendly with a constant view of the Acropolis from most of the windows.
