Established to preserve the rich heritage of ancient Greece, Acropolis Museum brings together thousands of artifacts found at the world-famous ancient citadel located on a rocky outcrop above Athens. Opened in 2009 just a short walk from this heritage-listed archaeological site, the museum exhibits nearly 4,000 objects, including items formerly held in storage or displayed by foreign museums. The collection focuses on statues from the 5th century BCE, widely regarded as the finest examples of ancient artistic achievement. The museum building, a major tourist attraction in itself, features exhibit spaces designed to give each artifact a clear historical context. Finish your visit at the second-floor restaurant, which offers panoramic views of the city's historical hills.

  • If interested in the history of Acropolis this fantastic museum is a must! A bit confusing where you can take photos and where not... so better ask.

  • I was very positively surprised by this museum. First of all: the architecture is amazing. It is very open, bright and modern and there are features that amazed me. Secondly, it has a very impressive collection of ancient pieces found in and around Athens and the acropolis. They are telling a clear and concise story. Don’t miss and definitely visit the excavation site after leaving the museum. It was a great experience.
  • Excellent museum to learn about the Acropolis. Museum is a beautiful architectural design. From the outside, the top museum windows reflect on the Acropolis. There are glass floors outside & inside the museum - the outside floors look down into the ruins below. The ruins are open to walk through after the last group of visitors at 4:30pm. Get a tour deal that includes both the museum & the Acropolis - you won't be disappointed. We went Mid-March, & just as they opened the doors in the morning, so no crowds.
