  • Ancient and modern marry perfectly in a place that will leave you speechless. The space is contemporary with bright light bathes to exhibits. Artifacts of a bygone era. Unimaginable for us. A journey through time and the magnificence of a people of antiquity. I will not write much, because the more we are described. You simply have to see. Prefer morning hours to avoid the crowds. Work focus area and shops with souvenirs.

  • The new museum is a must-see after a walk in the Acropolis. The museum is state of the art regarding the exhibits and architecturally as well. Make sure you do not need to rush through it!  more »
