Skip the long lines and visit the new Acropolis Museum in your own time. One of the most important museums in Greece has a total area of 25,000 square meters and includes archaeological treasures dating to pre-historic times. The museum is divided into 4 main galleries and offers the opportunity to the visitor to view archaeological artifacts and learn about the Acropolis site.

After crossing the ground floor lobby towards the turn styles of the Museum, the first collection lies before you. The Gallery of the Slopes of the Acropolis houses finds from the sanctuaries that were founded on the slopes of the Acropolis, as well as objects that Athenians used in everyday life from all historic periods.

Continue to the Archaic Acropolis Gallery and view exhibits from all sides as three-dimensional exhibits. With the benefit of the changing natural light, you can discern and discover the delicate surface variations of sculptures and select the vantage point from which to observe the exhibits.

At the final Gallery, you will admire views of unique works that became prototypes for subsequent periods from antiquity to today. For the first time ever, it is possible to view the coffered ceiling of the Propylaia and the sculptures from the parapet of the temple of Athena Nike, and finally, the Caryatids – or Korai of the Erechtheion at close proximity on the balcony overlooking the Gallery of the Slopes of the Acropolis. The main monuments that constitute the Classical Acropolis are the Propylaia, the temple of Athena Nike and the Erechtheion.

The exhibition concludes at the north side of the first floor gallery where you will see numerous statues were placed on the Acropolis, which represented gods, heroes, mythological themes and portraits of famous men including the Sanctuary of Artemis Brauronia.

The Acropolis Museum is situated in the historic center of Athens, just southeast of the Acropolis. The address is Dionysiou Areopagitou 15, Athens 117 42, Greece.

The Acropolis Museum is designed to be accessible for people with disabilities. It has ramps, elevators, and accessible restrooms to accommodate visitors with mobility challenges.

On average, visitors spend around 1,5 hours in the museum. We recommend that you have at least 2 hours to spend in the museum to go over the exhibits at a leisurely pace.

Photography is allowed in most areas of the museum, with the exception of the Archaic Acropolis Gallery on the first floor, without the use of flash.  

Ideally, it's best to visit the Acropolis Museum during the early hours of the day; it tends to get crowded between 11 AM to 2 PM. 

It comes down to your personal preference if you want to visit the Acropolis or the Acropolis museum first. However, if you have only one day in Athens we recommend you to visit the Acropolis first in order to avoid the crowds and the heat.
