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.

I'm a Museum Junkie!!! I can't get enough!!! I've been to Museums all over the World, and This may be One of My Favorites!!! To be privileged to be able to even stand in the same space as ALL this Antiquity, is amazing!!! To gaze upon relics from a Time that helped shape the World, as we know it, is nothing less than awe-inspiring!!!! Your trip to Athens wouldn't be complete without making this Museum a "Point of Interest"!!! You'll be surrounded by Ancient Greece, ALL in ONE Place... What's Better That THAT!!!?!!!
Was able to receive free entry due to my status as a student. Was everything I expected. There were many employees ready to help and explain anything you viewed. If say it's worth your time. Not so big that it will take up too much of your day. But worth the trip
