Today, the Acropolis Museum has a total area of 25,000 square meters, with exhibition space of over 14,000 square meters, ten times more than that of the old museum on the Hill of the Acropolis. The Museum offers all the amenities expected in an international museum of the 21st century.

The rich collections provide visitors with a comprehensive picture of the human presence on the Acropolis, from pre-historic times through late Antiquity. Integral to this program is the display of an archaeological excavation on the site of the Museum itself: ruins from the 4th through 7th centuries A.D., left intact and protected beneath the building and made visible through the first floor.

Navigate in Greek history through the galleries of the Slopes of the Acropolis, the Archaic Acropolis, the Parthenon, Propylaia, Athena Nike, Erechtheion and the exhibition from the 5th c. BC to the 5th c. AD.

The Gallery of the Slopes of the Acropolis houses finds from the sanctuaries that were founded on the slopes of the Acropolis, as well as objects that Athenians used in everyday life from all historic periods. On the left hand side, finds from some of the key sanctuaries of the slopes are exhibited. On the right hand side, finds from the smaller sanctuaries and settlements that developed on the slopes of the Hill are displayed. In antiquity, the slopes of the Sacred Rock constituted the transition zone between the city and its most famous sanctuary. This was the area where official and popular cults, as well as large and small sanctuaries existed alongside private houses.

In the Archaic Acropolis Gallery, for the first time, visitors have the opportunity to view exhibits from all sides as three-dimensional exhibits. With the benefit of the changing natural light, visitors can discern and discover the delicate surface variations of sculptures and select the vantage point from which to observe the exhibits. In the south side of the Gallery, depictions of young women (the Korai), the horse riders (the Hippeis) and many other provide a striking picture of the Acropolis in the Archaic Period.

The last gallery of the Museum, affords views of unique works that became prototypes for subsequent periods from antiquity to today. For the first time ever, it is possible to view the coffered ceiling of the Propylaia and the sculptures from the parapet of the temple of Athena Nike, and finally, the Caryatids – or Korai of the Erechtheion at close proximity on the balcony overlooking the Gallery of the Slopes of the Acropolis. The main monuments that constitute the Classical Acropolis are the Propylaia, the temple of Athena Nike and the Erechtheion.

Reliefs of Athenian decrees, impressive portraits, Roman copies of classical masterpieces and depictions of philosophers and historical figures are the exhibits covering the period from the 5th century BC to the 5th century AD. These collections of the Museum include the Sanctuary of Artemis Brauronia, the votives of the Classical and Hellenistic Periods and the votives of the Roman Period. 

The Acropolis Museum provides a restaurant on the second floor, with panoramic views of the Acropolis and a 700 square meter public terrace commanding a breathtaking view of the historic hills of Athens. Among other facilities, the Museum offers a Reading Lounge on the second floor with views of the Caryatids and the Hekatompedos Pediment where visitors can relax on comfortable chairs and browse through books on the Acropolis and the classical world.

There are many guidebooks and tours available on Athens, covering many known and unknown aspects of the city’s history and culture. On the prowl: The cats of Athens presents something unique: a tour based on, and dedicated to, the beautiful cats of Athens. Regal or common, spotless or scruffy, friendly or haughty, Athenian cats form an indispensable part of the urban environment and proudly occupy all the local monuments.
This is a self-guided mobile tour provided by our tour-guide app. The tour is based on an award-winning storytelling concept and the fascinating narratives prepared by handpicked destination experts. Enjoy this multilingual tour by using your smartphone or tablet at your own pace, even if you are offline. The interactive map on your screen will guide you step by step to explore all the points of interest along your route. Each stop comes with a selection of signature stories, allowing you to tailor this experience to your personal interests and schedule.

In contrast to most traditional guided tours, that tend to focus on the ancient temples, the medieval churches, and the neoclassical jewels of this city, the tour “On the prowl - The cats of Athens” focuses on these felines and highlights the almost mythical stories of their arrival and gradual domination in Athens.

This trip down memory lane begins at one of Athens’ most picturesque spots. Anafiotika is an island in the heart of Athens with narrow lanes and tiny whitewashed houses clinging to the rocks. Ancient Athenian households and markets were full of dogs, grasshoppers, crickets, hedgehogs or monkeys who served as pets. You were more likely to come across a cheetah than a cat in downtown Athens.

As you make your way through the Plaka district, take time and introduce yourself to the city’s adventurous feline residents who enjoy a bird’s-eye view of the Ancient Agora. Was Aristotle right when he claimed that cats are particularly lascivious because they instigate the sexual act by inviting the male? The answer may lie among the ruins of the Roman Agora, frequented by “Little Cats” and “Kittens” (Felicla, Felicula, and Cattula were popular female names back in the Roman days). The remains of the Byzantine church, visible beneath the foundations of the mosque in the Roman Agora, reverberate with the calls of Mechlempe’s descendants. He was the imperial Byzantine cat and lived a life of luxury as he ate from gold plates. During the Ottoman period cats were the subjects of as much adoration as in the time of the pharaohs. The ruins of the madrasa remain a favorite feline haunt in memory of that relationship.

To take this self-guided tour you will need to download Clio Muse app on your iOS or Android device.


HIGHLIGHTS

Highlights include the pleasure of watching the Greek light dance on the colourful fur of cats in Anafiotika as you read a brief report on the sudden appearance of black and white cats 2000 years ago. You can hear the primordial purring of the cats as you overlook the Ancient Agora, where the aristocrats of old used to take their leopards for a walk, and feel the glories of the Byzantine and Ottoman past surround you in the Roman Agora, as you read about the spoon-fed Mechlempae, the imperial cat.

Each stop comes with a selection of signature stories, allowing you to tailor this experience to your personal interests and schedule.

The tour begins at the Temple of Olympian Zeus, one of the largest ancient temples that took many centuries to complete, where you learn about the difficult childhood of the supreme god and his struggles against his own father and the Titans. Zeus and his siblings (Poseidon, Hades, Hera, Hestia and Demeter) fought against the dominant Titans for the right to rule the world in a struggle that raged for ten years since both sides were immortal. Next stop is the Monument of Lysicrates, honoring Dionysus, the god associated with the vine, winemaking, ritual madness, religious ecstasy and theatre. During one of his journeys he was captured by a group of Tyrrhenian pirates who wanted to sell him as a slave. His miraculous escape is narrated on the monument’s marble surface.

The cave of Aglauros and the Erechtheion are both associated with goddess Athena and her early days as patron-goddess of Athens. The Areopagus Hill, on the other hand, is the site of the first murder trials in the Greek world. Ares, the god of war, sought vengeance for the rape of his daughter; Daedalus was charged with the murder of his nephew, whom he pushed off the Acropolis because he was envious of the young boy’s skill with his hands. The Temple of Hephaestus honors the god of fire and brings to mind his difficult relationships with both his mother and his wife. Finally, the Statue of Theseus commemorates one of the main heroes in Greek mythology who was especially admired in Athens as the founder of the city. The Athenians took advantage of every opportunity to associate themselves with Theseus and project themselves as the descendants of the great king.

To take this self-guided tour you will need to download Clio Muse app on your iOS or Android device.


HIGHLIGHTS
  • the shrine of Pan, who became the most important divine friend of the Athenians for his assistance in the Battle of Marathon, when he instilled a deadly panic to the Persians
  • the Hill of the Nymphs where pregnant women used to slide down the rocks on the side of the hill to ask for the spirits’ aid to have a safe childbirth, offering them milk and honey in return
  • the fascinating story of Arachne, a young woman who claimed that she could weave better than Athena herself and she actually challenged the goddess to a contest.
