This was one of the best museum experiences I have ever had. It was made even more interesting and eye opening by our excellent tour guide who explained everything in a clear and concise manner. I've learned things about Athens and ancient Greek that I didn't know before. The details of ancient life and the sculptures, especially the Karyatids and... More

We ordered a bottle of wine but they do not have anything to serve with it. Also we can not order dinner only after 20:00 but when we called they didn't inform us. Low level service

It's a long time since I was last in Athens and this wonderful museum was a lovely surprise. Not overwhelming but lots of information and an archaeologist on hand to answer questions... Excellent food on the terrace but the gift shop closes early so had to miss that..

The museum is laid out well and gives a great history of the Acropolis. Visiting the museum before the Acropolis helps visitors beter understand what they are loking at when the visit the Acropolis.

This museum is like no other. The entire museum is built over an archeological dig site, which you can see per glass floors throughout. It also houses a lot of the statues and ruins from on top of the acropolis, as to preserve them. Tickets were only 5€ a person. A lot of the plaques are in Greek and English,... More

What a lovely museum this. So interesting and well laid out without any feeling of clutter. A beautiful view of the Acropolis from the Restaurant which we didn't actually use. Spent about an hour here. Rucksacks are not allowed so you have to leave them in a cloakroom. A very well designed museum and just a few minutes from the... More

We didn't have enough time to go through the museum, but the ongoing excavation of a large urban settlement under the museum is impressive. It can be viewed through the glass floor panels at the entry to the museum or you can walk around the right hand side at ground level and look across under the museum itself

I am not really a fan of archaeology but visited this museum three times during my relatively brief stay in Athens. The first was on my own on Friday evening when the museum and restaurant stay open late. To be honest, my meal in the restaurant was disappointing. My pork and mashed potatoes was cold and I had to have... More

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighbourhood Profile
Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely pedestrianised Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centrepiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
