3.6 / 5

based on 60 reviews

We loved it, the staff welcomed us and explained how it worked when activating our tickets, the 48 hrs up on up off bus package with entry to several sites and museums allows us to discover without stress and plan our days.

The museum is extremely well curated. There is lots of supporting information in each of the galleries to get a good idea about the topics. A nice balance of artefacts, text and visual/digital interpretation.

Remember to go to the ticket office to print the tickets. You will discover that QR code that you received may not work in Acropolis Park.

We still have to go and exchange our “tickets” for passes We had to take a taxi to get there

No problems with admission to the museums, otherwise everything is fine. Nice city trip.
