2. What you can expect

The Acropolis Museum is consistently rated as one of the best museums in the world. It houses every artifact found on the Rock of Acropolis and the surrounding slopes. Built in an inventive way, it successfully conveys how the citizens of ancient Athens once looked upon the Parthenon sculptures. The large glass panes beautifully draw in the ancient and modern parts of the city, making it a truly evocative experience.

 

During this Acropolis Museum tour, we regard the Acropolis Museum as a book with a storyline and we explore the story of “your” ancient Athenian family through life, mythology and religion, through war, marriage and love, little Symposiums and grand public festivals. The collection covers a breadth of six centuries, from the Archaic to the Roman period, but special emphasis is put on the Acropolis of the 5th century BC, an era considered to be the apotheosis of ancient Greece's artistic achievement. The exhibits are brought to life as we interact with them through fun and creative activities, led by our expert licensed guide and storyteller. Exploring the past through the art of storytelling is the best way to comprehend it. This, in combination with fun and creative activities, offers a one-of-a-kind experience.
