Full Description

The Acropolis museum is one of the best museums in the world, it has gained several awards and it was voted as the best museum in Europe for the year 2012. Designed by the renowned Swiss architect Bernard Tschumi and the notable Greek architect Michalis Fotiadis, the Acropolis Museum captivates guests right from the beginning. The sleek, modern building opened its doors in June 2009, and elegantly showcases more than 4.000 artifacts exclusively from the Acropolis hill.One of the most spectacular aspects of the museum is its glass floors and walkways that reveal real excavations below your own feet. The highlight of the museum is the 3rd floor, the Parthenon room, surrounded by glass walls, where you feel free, surprised and amazed at the same time. The size of the room is the exact size of the Parthenon, so walking in the Parthenon room of the museum feels like you are walking around the real Parthenon, admiring all the metopes, frieze and pediments.On the first floor of the museum you will be able to admire the original Caryatides, cleaned and refreshed by the unique double laser-light machine, a great innovation from the collaboration of two Greek universities.On the second floor of the museum you can always enjoy a traditional greek meal at the restaurant or a cup of coffee at the cafeteria, inside, in the air conditioned room or outside with the view of the Parthenon.There is a bookshop on the 2nd floor and a gift shop on the ground floor, so you can keep memories or/and bring an elegant gift to your friends back home.Do not forget to visit the ancient neighborhood, underneath the museum, which was revealed during the excavations and feel the energy of the past, walking between the remains of the houses and the streets.
