With an underground station conveniently located at its front entrance, the new Acropolis Museum is home to the most important artefacts found on the ‘sacred rock’. With rare objects dating from the Mycenaean Era through to the Roman and early Christian ages, it is a must-see while in Athens.

Since opening in 2009, millions of visitors have gazed at the Parthenon sculptures that fill the museum. The large overhead windows offer a glimpse of the ancient monuments that tower above.

Replacing the old museum that had operated next to the Parthenon since the 19th century, the new Acropolis Museum displays antiquity with a modern twist. Built on pillars directly above the Roman-era archaeological site, the museum allows visitors to look through transparent floors at the site’s artefacts.

To preserve its artefacts, the museum relies heavily on natural light, giving its exhibits a unique glow.
