Acropolis Kids Museum Parthenon marbles
Average Cost: 5€ (Reduced: 3€) | Temporary exhibition: plus 3€ / Ε-ticket service available

In the Acropolis museum you will see exhibits from the ancient city and findings from the Acropolis, including Parthenon marbles.

Made of concrete, steel and glass, the Acropolis museum permits the existence of an endless dialogue between the exhibits and their natural environment, Acropolis hill, which is only 300m away. The last level (The Parthenon room) has the dimensions and the direction of the Parthenon and has been rotated by 23 degrees in relation to the rest of the building to offer the visitor an immediate view of the monument.

The children facilities and the well-organized kids activities make the museum ideal for family visits.
