The Basics

Wander the Acropolis Museum (Museo Akropoleos) for a look at original pieces from the temples of the Acropolis, protected from further deterioration and presented with historical context. In the Parthenon Gallery, see the famous marble frieze recreated. View statues that predate the Acropolis itself in Archaic Gallery, and find pots, children's toys and other things used by the early settlers in Gallery of the Slopes.

In summer and Easter tourist peaks, a skip-the-line ticket saves time. The Acropolis Museum is set up for independent exploration, but it’s also a popular stop on Athens history tours. An Acropolis Museum tour makes the perfect introduction to the sights of the Acropolis above.

Highly recommend!
This was worth the time and money! Fotini was a fantastic guide and made the tour fun and educational. She answered all of our questions about the historical sites and general greek culture. She was also very patient with the members of the group who wanted to take some extra photos of all the sites.

Athens All Included: Acropolis and Museum In a Cultural Guided Walking Tour
The tour provided a nice overview of the acropolis. Natalie was pleasant, quite familiar with the subject and kept the tour at a nice pace. If there was anything to be improved it would be for the guide to speak a little louder and work on storytelling skills.

Half Day Athens Sightseeing Tour with Acropolis Museum
Enjoyable and informative tour. Pick up and drop off good. Whispers would have been useful, the phone app did not work and were a waste of time. Enjoyed the acropolis and the museum. Could have done without the city tour.

How to Get There

The Acropolis Museum is a 10-minute walk from the Acropolis in downtown Athens, and many travelers combine a visit to the Acropolis with a tour of the museum. Driving in historic Athens is not recommended. Ride the metro to Acropolis (Line 2), catch a bus or a trolley to Makriyianni, take the tram to Leoforos Vouliagmenis, cycle, or go with a tour.

The Parthenon Frieze

The Acropolis Museum’s most famous—and most controversial—display is the Parthenon Frieze, a 525-foot (160-meter) masterpiece by the fifth-century Athenian sculptor Phidias that once crowned the Parthenon temple. The white patches are plaster casts of its missing pieces, the Parthenon Marbles or Elgin Marbles, removed by Lord Elgin in 1801 and now held by London’s British Museum. Watch the film to learn more about the religious procession the frieze depicts.
