If you don't have much time in Athens, make sure you visit this museum and the Acropolis, preferably the museum before the sight. Your could spend 1 or more hours here. The second museum not to miss is the National Archeological Museum.

A visit to the Acropolis Museum is a must, as the exhibits and video presentations are very informative. A drink or meal at the museum cafe with open terrace and view of the Acropolis should not be missed either.

The museum was amazing, especially for those who love or are interested in the Ancient Greek civilizations. The layout and design was excellent and the pricing of the tickets were acceptable. It's best going during winter holidays as there are less crowds. I went there during the summer in 2014 and was crowded!!!

This is a beautiful and well thought out museum. It has beautiful views of the site itself, but why not visit the real thing?

A bit stark, but very informative, new and interesting. We especially enjoyed the brief history (video) in Greek and English regarding the facades of the parthenon itself.

I have visited this museum four times since it opened. I suggest visiting the first floor before going up the acropolis to see the Parthenon. In addition , you should watch the film on the third floor about the history of the Parthenon and the statues . Then have a light lunch in the café on the second floor (... More

Strategic at the foot of the Acropolis, this museum is one of the best conceived in the world. Explanatory and pedagogic. Start here before climbing the cliff and you get so much more out of your visit at the Acropolis top.

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.
