Athens – Acropolis Museum

You may wonder why or if you should visit the Acropolis Museum if you think about going or you went to the Acropolis Museum, well yes you should go.  What happened is the Acropolis is a very old site and the reason why we are lucky it is still standing despite being expose to everyday wind, sun and climate is because of constant support and restoration.  In order to preserve original masterpiece, they had to replace some original work with copies and they are keeping the original version at the museum.

In order words, the Acropolis Museum is an archaeological museum focusing on the Acropolis original artifacts. It allows you to have a closer look to the work of art.

Why doing both the museum and the hill, you get up close and in the details at the museum and you get the surrounding context on top of the rock.

We followed other travelers’ recommendation and we visited the Acropolis Museum first and the next day we visited the actual Acropolis site.  I think we all appreciated more the Acropolis after seeing the museum.  

From the entrance area, the clear floor allows you to see the exaction site underneath the museum. 

Unfortunately, the museum combo pass do not work at this location. Line up can be long but it is totally worth it.
