As you enter the new Acropolis Museum, you can sit on the colorful plastic seats and watch a full video of the planning and building of the new museum. Most interestingly, you will see the actual painstaking moving of the marble statues from the old museum to the new! What an amazing even that was! I remember the tall cranes above the Acropolis and watching the huge wooden boxes being relayed from one high crane to the next and finally down to the new museum!
