Acropolis Museum: Unveiling Greece's Storied Legacy

The historical and iconic Acropolis Museum is one of the most important structures, which consists of a large range exhibition of the finds extracted from the first excavation of the Acropolis. On further excavations a much larger collection of objects was found, it was so large that a second building alongside the old building was constructed in 1988. Again, in 2004 a new Acropolis Museum was built to house the massive collection excavated from the Acropolis of Athens like the Parthenon, the Propylaea, the Erechtheion and the Temple of Athena Nike.


At the museum a thematic representation of the finds of the Acropolis of Athens has been organised over the four floors- the underground, ground floor, first and second floor. By booking your Acropolis Museum tickets you’d be able to witness the large collection of more than 4,000 artefacts that belong to the Archaic, Classical and Roman periods. At the ground floor you would find the collection of objects extracted from slopes of Acropolis, the first floor deals with the history of Acropolis since the beginning of 2nd millennium B.C. and at the second floor you’d enter into the marvellous Parthenon hall. A display of underlying archeological excavation of the architecture like baths, streets, villas, plumbing, etc., at the museum would help you know more about the settlement of ancient Athens.
