impressive and enjoyable way to learn on this historic place. Uneven spots in some areas - not for wheelchair access. Don't forget to try to run or walk on the track - just like Olympic athletes did.

This museum had incredible finds from the grounds. It is not overly huge and you can get through it in a half an hour and pretty well see everything. There are no restaurants within the museum.

this is a place where all the torches were lit, that's why you can not see them anymore; this is just a starting point for their journey, that's correct.

Most are in the small museum attached to the Panathenaic Stadium located in Athens and definitely worth a visit. Many of the official art and posters located here as well.
