What people are saying about Makrygianni

Undoubtedly an essential, I consider it worth entering the museum first and taking it with a Guide to learn details that we later overlook. and after the museum, go to the acropolis! but that will be in your time and decision. Without a doubt, the museum is beautiful and worth spending a few hours on.

The museum is beautifully designed with an almost overwhelming collection of artifacts! It’s easy to maneuver through, and everything has English captions so it was easy to understand. The unearthed houses below the building were an amazing sight. A must see for anyone traveling to Athens.

Didn’t use audio guide of the app. Only tickets for entry without any lines. Fast and easy.

The Museum was amazing and should not be missed when visiting Athens

This was amazing - our tour guide Kiki was exceptional.
