If you are at all interested in Greece (specifically Athenian) history and architecture, this place cannot be missed. If you aren't interested in the above, go for an hour or two anyway. Happily admission only costs €5 (€3 for students) so there is really no excuse to not pay a visit.

In the beginning I thought the Acropolis Museum must have to be done in an anscient building but I like it also in a modern building. We were very good, was the most beautiful thing in Athens :)

This is a perfect place to cool off after walking up to the Acropolis. It contains so much of the beautiful history of the Acropolis in Athens and yet the design is so modern and refreshing. A great place and contrast, don't miss out.

The Acropolis museum truly puts the Greek history into perspective. Thousands of years of exhibits are everywhere. Ancient ruins under the building are viewable through clear panels built into the floor. And there is a incredible view of the Acropolis. Highly recommended.

I love the Acropolis and I loved the museum. Beautifully presented. Wonderful place. And only €5 to get in! With stunning views of the Parthenon right next to it.

Acropolis museum is one of the best I have ever visited. It shows exhibits which were part of Acropolis and it is located just opposite to Acropolis. It also reveals which parts are missing because other museums (like London museum and Louvre) refuse to give them back to the place they belong.

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.
