National Archeological Museum, Athens: 66 reviews and 119 photos
Although many "busy" greeks that walk outside the museum on Patision street never been inside the museum a lot of people know how much history you can find here.... Do your self a favor if you like museums to see some fine exables of ancient greece....
It was originally built in 3 stages at 1880 and many times since then there have been changes in the interior to create more space for new items. In ourdays there is a plan for a new underground level.
I prefer the prehistoric and sculpture collections but there are also some other collections: Bronze, Egyptyptian, Stathatos, Thera, Pottery & small Ornaments etc
The museum is open daily 8.30-15.00 (tuesday to sunday) and 13.30-20.00 (monday). The cafe on the garden is very popular too.
The entrance fee is 7 euros (3e reduced price for EU citizens over 65).
