Wonderful! Amazing! Not to be missed! Everytime I visit this museum, I see something new. The exhibitions on the Acropolis are constantly being renovated and new things are being added. It definately warrents return visits! Don't think if you have gone once, you have seen and absorbed everything. You may be surprised the next time you go, that you see something you hadn't noticed before, or you will definately see it with a new perspective.

All Greek citizens, who are in the know that is, are hoping that one day all the pieces that were 'stolen' and taken to other museum, namely the erroneously called 'Elgin Marbles,' will be rightly returned to be seen in the original home they were meant to dwell in for eternity. Until that day arrives, no visit to the Acropolis or it's museum will be complete!
