The Acropolis Museum opened in 2009 and is truly a unique experience.
After you get your ticket, you can travel in time by viewing scale models of the evolution of the City of Athens from prehistoric times to the Middle Ages.
The Acropolis Museum is near the Acropolis Metro station and is across from the Theater of Dionysus, which leads to the entrance of the Acropolis. Plan to spend at least one hour at this museum.
The Acropolis Museum is designed to lead you from the slopes of the hill to its archaic artifacts on the first floor, up to the third floor, on which you will find all the available artwork from the Parthenon on display. The transparent floor provides a view of the archaeological excavation, while its upward slope hints the ascent toward the Acropolis.
One of the unique aspects of this museum is that visitors may view the exhibits from all sides as three-dimensional exhibits without the hindrance of ropes or glass.
The artwork is a combination of the original blocks of the frieze and cast copies of the pieces in the museum abroad, such as the British Museum and the Louvre.
