Wonderful museum, well laid out. Get a private guide to take you thru for a real splurge. Crowds quite manageable in June.

If you have visited other prestigious museums, the Acropolis Museum will not blow you away. You will see lots of pottery and many large statues that I guess were too heavy for other countries to steal. Sorry, that is my opinion.

We visited this museum after the Archeological Museum. That left this one as a little less interesting.

Only 5€ entry- bargain. If you don't know much about the Parthanon head to the museum first and make sure to watch the videos they show and then you will have a very good idea of what you are looking at. You need to spend at least half a day there, there is so much to enjoy. Personally my favourite... More

The real question here is not whether to visit but when - either before or after visiting the actual Acropolis. My appreciation of Acropolis would have been more if i had done the museum first. However, it makes sense to go to the Acropolis early before too many crowds/tour busses and also the heat of the day. So that is... More

Once you have seen the Acropolis it is nice to go to the museum to see the detail that the structures originally contained. The museum has a wonderful movie and is easy to walk through.

This museum is the perfect compliment to visiting the Acropolis. The statues and other artifacts from the Acropolis are displayed so beautifully. The third floor features elements of the Parthenon, which you can view through huge windows as walk through the exhibit. It's one of my favorite museums ever.

Highly recommend a visit, but make sure you're there early in peak season as it gets very busy. We walked straight-in at 9am, but lines were crazy by 11am. Excellent value for money! Was good to visit the day after doing a walking tour of Athens the day before - helped to put everything into perspective

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.
