THE ACROPOLIS MUSEUM



Even before you enter the Acropolis Museum, you have stepped back in time. Reinforced glass floors allow you to gaze down on ancient dwellings discovered during construction. Spanning three floors, the glass and concrete galleries are filled with stunning sculptures, tools, ceramics, jewellery and other artefacts unearthed on and around the Acropolis. The Archaic gallery is especially moving: you can wander among the free-standing statues, which seem to come to life. Highlights include five of the six famous Caryatids (the other is in the British Museum), and the Parthenon frieze, which runs around the rectangular top-floor gallery, just as it would have done on the temple overhead. Video projections transport you back to 5th century BC Athens to see how the Parthenon looked during its glorious heyday.
