|About these ratings|
The Old Acropolis Museum was closed in 2007, primarily due to its lack of space. Subsequently, its contents were moved to the New Acropolis Museum, which opened in the summer of 2009. The emphasis of this site is housing archaeological findings from the Acropolis. Key exhibits include a relief of Athena Nike and a series of Kore (maiden) statues that were found buried in a pit in the Acropolis.
The museum is located on the archaeological site of Makrygianni, about 900 feet southeast of the Acropolis. For a minimal fee you can visit any day from Tuesday through Sunday, from the morning into the evening.
