This is a must see if you like Mycean artifacts. Some of the collection date back 5000 years. At the current time, there is a beautiful collection of statues, urns, vases and artifacts tied to the Odyssey of Homer. Museum has a shop, cafe and...More

We visited this museum twice. You. Just can't take it all in in one visit-or2 for that matter. The first floor holds some wonderful human sculptures. A nice collection of Cycladic art and the magnificent gold from Mycenae tucked in the very back left corner...More

There are so many artifacts in the National Archaeological Museum and they cover such a vast period of time that one cannot not visit it when in Athens. This is hands down one of the most important museums in the world. You can spend days...More

As expected with lots of Greek marble busts, statues, and some early history of Greece and Sparta. The exhibits explanations are thoughtfully in Greek and English. Much of the ancient history of Greece is explained here demonstrated with marble script and exhibits.

Amazing walk through history greek, Egyptian and some Roman. If you can go but there is so much there it will take hours to even walk around and even more to take the time and look at everything.

Easy to reach by metro. Lovely outdoor reasonably priced cafe. Truly a national museum, not Athens -centric and covers a wide spread of time as well. Fascinating medical information and early astronomical clock were highlights for me.

We were able to see artifacts from 4500 BC! So much pottery, statues and jewelry. These folks really likes to decorate their dead. Most of the stuff came from funeral/graves in Greece. The detail they were able to put in the artifacts with hand tools...More

Exarchia is in many ways Athens’ best-kept secret,
discovered by relatively few international visitors.
Located behind the main University and Polytechnic
buildings, it is unsurprisingly home to many students,
intellectuals and politicos. This is reflected in the
area’s vibrant street art and graffiti, which seems to
cover almost every inch of wall space. Some of the
best Athenian tavernas are located here, as well as

Hi, I'll be staying near the Akropolis and wondering how I should get to the National Archaeological Museum. It seems I will not be able to avoid Omonia Square (whether on foot or metro), and I'm reading many reviews to stay away from Omonia since it's recently become dangerous. Is taxi the only good way around this? Thank you in advance.

You will see conflicting reports about the safety in this area as this changes dynamically by the day and the number of tourists so be careful to make your own assessments.. The police don't care less about tourist safety... More
