About the Acropolis Museum

Inaugurated in 2009 as a successor to the antiquated museum perched on the Acropolis hill, the new Acropolis Museum is dedicate to the preservation and display of Greece's millennia-old history and culture. Situated just a short distance from the Athenian hill, the Acropolis Museum has quickly become an obligatory stop on any Athenian itinerary.

The museum's extensive collection range of artifacts includes sculptures and fragments from the Parthenon, the Temple of Athena Nike, the Erechtheion, and numerous other ancient structures that once graced the Acropolis. In addition to its regular exhibitions, the museum actively contributes to the intellectual and cultural discourse through the organization of various activities, informative talks and other special events on its grounds.

The Acropolis Museum’s importance extends far beyond its role as a cultural landmark and repository of ancient relics; it serves as a custodian of ancient Greek heritage, fostering understanding and appreciation of a civilization that profoundly shaped the world. As if all this were not enough, the museum offers a breathtaking view of the Acropolis that adds visual context to the historical wonders it houses.

Inside the Acropolis Museum

A visit to the Acropolis Museum serves as an essential journey into the depth of ancient Athens and Greek culture. Spanning four levels, the museum beautifully encapsulates the evolution of the ancient Greek civilization through different eras.

Your journey begins at the museum's basement, which offers a unique glimpse into ancient Athens. Through a glass floor, you can peer at the remains of an old Athenian neighborhood that was discovered during construction, entombed in time and the building itself.

The ground floor, or “Gallery of the Slopes of the Hills” is built at an angle to mirror the climb up the hill and presents the daily artefacts of ancient Greeks living around the Acropolis. Exhibitions on this floor also reveal many details about the ambitious development of the Acropolis during the Golden Era of Athens.

Ascending to the “Archaic Acropolis Gallery” on the first floor, you are greeted by awe-inspiring statues and sculptures, hailing from 700 BC to 480 BC. This gallery also houses five of the six original Caryatids that adorned the enigmatic Erechtheion - a testament to ancient Greek craftsmanship.

The jewel of the Acropolis Museum, the “Parthenon Gallery” on the third floor, reflects the architectural prowess of the original Parthenon, while offering a captivating view of it. The gallery holds many original sculptures of the ancient temple, including a 160-meter frieze, pediments and metopes.
