Full description
Discover relics from Ancient Greece at the peak of its creative influence in the 5th century BC, and complete your visit to the iconic Acropolis with a guided tour of the New Acropolis Museum.

Designed by the architects Bernard Tschumi and Michael Photiadis, the museum is a treasure chest of artifacts formerly held in other museums, in storage, or returned from foreign collections. Marvel at the 1st floor Archaic Gallery as it is bathed in natural light. See excavations made visible through stunning glass floors.

A licensed local guide will show you highlights from the museum's collection of more than 4,000 artifacts, which include votive offerings to Athena, statues of the Caryatids, and a glass atrium built in alignment with the Parthenon.

I really enjoyed this tour and the tour guide. It was the last part of a larger tour that the other guests had been part of. I wish that I had been a part of that full day tour which visited the Acropolis itself and other parts of the city, as I really like the tour guide.

Loved it <3

Our guide, Natasha, was fantastic. The amount of information is just enough to keep you interested, curious and not overwhelm you. Natasha delivered that perfectly - good energy, smiling, always making sure everybody has a good view of the object in question. We only booked the Museum Tour with her but hearing the other participants, going for both the Acropolis + Museum is well worth it.

the pace of the tour is great, the magnitude of the tour in relation to what we could tour with a limited guide.
