|About these ratings|
"One of the most exciting collections of Greek antiquities in the world, this is a must-do for any travelers to Athens, nay, Greece," says Fodor's, and you will find many travelers agreeing with this sentiment. That's because the National Archaeological Museum contains some of the most revered artifacts of Greece, dating back to prehistory, and is considered one of the world's great museums.
You'll find this museum in the Exarhia neighborhood of downtown Athens, just a short walk from the Viktoria metro station. Tuesdays through Sundays, the museum is open from the early morning into the evening. On Mondays it has reduced hours, opening in the afternoon and closing in the evening.
