Athens Acropolis Museum
A visit to the Acropolis is never complete without seeing the Acropolis Museum. Our guides organize the timing of the museum either before or after the Acropolis proper, considering the season and the crowds.
Acropolis Museum is stunning, to say the least. Our tour includes the treasures of the ancient Greek civilization as displayed inside the museum but please take note that the museum building itself is worth discovering.
Its unique design has incorporated the excavations which are visible under beautiful glass floors.
Today the Acropolis Museum houses original pieces from the temples of the Acropolis, protecting them from further deterioration, while also giving their historical context.
In the Parthenon Gallery, the famous marble frieze is recreated with both original marbles and casts of those pieces held elsewhere, such as the Elgin Marbles in the British Museum.
The Archaic Gallery has statues that pre-date even the Acropolis itself, and the Gallery of the Slopes of the Acropolis shows pots, children’s toys, and other things used by the early settlers in everyday life.
After your guided tour, you have the option to stay in the museum to explore further at your own pace and enjoy the view over the city and up to the Acropolis in its famous Museum Cafe!
