As the name suggests, this museum is devoted to findings from the Acropolis archaeological site. Opened in 2009, it displays almost 4,000 objects. There are mainly sculptures that used to decorate the historical sites located on the Acropolis, but also instruments that the inhabitants of Acropolis used in their everyday life.
This modern building also offers some great views of the sacred site from the top floor. A restaurant and a café are located there, so you can enjoy a nice cup of coffee or dinner while admiring the Acropolis.
Please note that you must go through an x-ray control when entering the building and backpacks and packages must be stored in a cloakroom. Free Wi-Fi internet access is provided. The nearest metro station is Akropoli (line 2).
