Beautiful building and excellent space. Will be even better as and when the British Museum returns the Marbles. One word of caution. The Museum closes at 4pm. We arrived at 3:15 and paid for our tickets but the cashier gave us no warning they were closing soon. Only when we went to the cafe for food did the waiter tell... More

Acropolis Museum is a must see in Athens. Allow about 2 hours for the museum. Check museum timings as daily end time differs.

You should first go to the museum before visiting the acropolis. The museum provides context to the structures at the structures located inside the acropolis. Very clean and modern museum with friendly staff and a nice bookstore

We had a tour guide take us through the Acropolis Museum and enjoyed seeing the history. It's definitely worth visiting while you are in Athens. You'll be amazed at all of the pieces they have.

We visited with our 8 and 10 year olds and all really enjoyed the museum. The video on the top floor gave a good overview of the history at just the right level and the exhibits were very clear with good explanations. The building is stunning with views of the acropolis from different angles. Definitely worth a visit.

Great museum close to the acropolis. It displays many statues find in the area. Very informative displays in English. Some reconstructions of temples give a good impression of the decorations created more than 2000 years ago. Restaurant has a terrace with a nice view of the Acropolis. Airconditioned.

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.
