Athens Line (3): New Acropolis Museum

The Acropolis Museum is an archaeological museum focused on the findings of the archaeological site of the Acropolis of Athens.

Officially opened in mid-2009, this beautifully designed museum has been built to give a fitting new home to the famed marble sculptures of the Acropolis.Glass walls allow a direct view of the Acropolis temples from within the museum, while the glass floor offers a view over the ruins of an early Christian settlement. The New Acropolis Museum, houses around 4.000 artifacts within a space almost 10 times larger than the old museum. An additional motivation for the construction of a new museum was that in the past, when Greece made requests for the return of the Parthenon Marbles from the United Kingdom, which acquired the items in a controversial manner, it was suggested by some British officials that Greece had no suitable location where they could be displayed. Creation of a gallery for the display of the Parthenon Marbles has been key to all recent proposals for the design of a new museum. Tel: +30 (210) 9000900.
