We stopped at the Museum after visiting the Acropolis. They've done a spectacular job with the exhibits and the layout of the museum. The museum is actually built on top of ancient ruins, which you can see at the entrance of the museum. The top floor is based on the exact same size of the Parthenon. Plenty of space to... More

Plan to spend a couple of hours at a minimum to see this world-class museum. Our visit was pleasant, informative, and awe-inspiring. The glass floors and the presentation of artifacts were exceptional.

We loved visiting the Acropolis Museum. It is so open and has great views (including the Acropolis). The statues (some copies) are beautifully displayed. We were so lucky to be almost on our own except for school groups. Stylish bookshop and cafes. Really enjoyed our visit.

The museum is in- depth - but you can skip anything that's boring to you. It's a great idea to have a book or tour so you can get context about what you're looking at, unless of course, you're an expert in classics or art history. There's just so much here you may get overwhelmed otherwise. Time lines are carefully... More

The building itself is worth the entrance ticket. It was built purposely to display the beauty and history of the Acropoli. I would advise to visit this museum prior to visiting the Acropoli itself, thus appreciating the monuments better.

Incredible collection. On the top floor one can see the parts of the Parthenon as it is located up in Acropolis. When you walk around, you can see the original through the huge windows. Simply amazing

The huge Acropolis Musuem is a quite impressive building, and the collection of artifacts is large. However, despite all the many statues and other works it is like something is missing. You walk around and look at lots of statues from the antiquity, but I missed the story that should glue the whole collection together. I expected a better presentation.... More

A must-visit museum in Athens that offers a lot of interesting sculptures and history facts. The only negative is the rude staff that gets aggressive with the people that take pictures in places that it isn't allowed, although there are no signs indicating that it is forbidden in some places. A few signs would have helped.

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.
