The New Acropolis Museum

Athens New Acropolis Museum

The New Acropolis Museum is located near the Acropolis. After our visit to the Acropolis, this was our next stop. Photographing inside the museum is not allowed, so we are not able to show you photos of the maidens (or caryatids). The upside is that you can stand very close to them and admire them.

What we can show you is the very interesting entrance.

The museum is built right on top of an archeological site. The excavation can be seen through glass plates and from a balcony. The excavation below ground level continues.

When the excavation is done, visitors will be able to walk around on the lower levels of the museum.
