About this activity

The New Acropolis Museum is located below the Acropolis, on the Grand Promenade. It is 200 meters from the Acropoli metro station. It is a landmark for Athens and it is the 3rd most popular in the world. Designed by the Swiss architect, Bernard Tschumi it opened in 2009. The new museum is an exceptional example of a design which respects the historical legacy of the city. The museum houses surviving antiquities of the Acropolis, that were previously exhibited in several museums. Accessibility has been considered, focusing mostly on the requirements of wheelchair users. Wheelchairs are also available free of charge at the Museum entrance for those with walking difficulties. There are also parking spaces for visitors with disabilities. The museum is popular not only for tourists but as a meeting place for the Athenians, who enjoy concerts, events and the restaurant/cafeteria. The President of the Acropolis Museum Board, Dimitrios Pantermalis has noted in an interview with Tourismtoday.gr in March 2013, that more than 5 million visitors have visited the museum between 2009 and 2013. 25% of these have visited 3 times or more, showing that Athenians are enthusiastic guests. The economic crisis and the blow to tourism was not enough to reduce the interest of foreign tourists coming to visit the Acropolis Museum. 17 For him, the Acropolis Museum is undoubtedly a means of promoting Greek tourism. To the extent permitted and in collaboration with the Ministry of Tourism the museum organizes events to boost Greek tourism. Ticket prices are maintained at low levels compared with other museums abroad. “We do this consciously to make it a world Museum, more affordable and comfortable to visit. We want to become part of the life of the Greeks and of any other visitors”. Transport The historical centre of Athens is well served by public transport, with a new Metro system connected with renovated electric railway, bus and trolley bus services, new tram lines and the. The transport system, which is designed to be accessible to wheelchair users and other persons with disabilities, connects directly with the Grand Promenade at many points.
