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
  • Acropolis Museum - visited 23/12/19 A great collection of archaeologists evidence that shows the change that the Acropolis has been through in the past. The layout is very simple and you are able to find what you are looking for easily. The building is very modern and the staff are very friendly. The entry is very cheap for what you get to see, only 5€. We also tried the restaurant inside and the food was fair and the drinks were exceptional. The pricing was reasonable as well. Highly suggest going early in the morning to avoid the larger crowds later in the day.
  • Really nice! There's a discount if you are a student. It was not expensive and it was nice to learn about the history of the Acropolis. Con's: We can't take any pictures, even without flash. I felt really observed by the security when I just took out my phone to look at the time.
  • Very wide building, informative exhibitions and short movies about Acropolis. Lovely terrace with view to Acropolis, €5 ticket's price and free entrance for EU students. Very nice and friendly museum's staff. I really recommend to visit, might be better first to visit the Museum and after Acropolis itself)
