Three must-see museums in Athens

Athens is a playground for the culturally curious traveller. There are tons of museums to visit, for every interest; from antiquity to modern times, Athens' history is fascinating and diverse. What to see? Where to go first? We have selected our top 3 recommendations. The Acropolis Museum, the National Archaeological Museum and the Museum of the City of Athens will help you put the long and exciting history of Athens in a timeline, from its early development in antiquity until its modern rebirth in the 19th century. 1. The Acropolis Museum The Parthenon through the years tour is an amazing collection of tales, legends and anecdotal stories about the great minds that envisioned and constructed the Acropolis and its pilgrims throughout the centuries. It sheds light not only to the turbulent story of the monument but also to the sometimes strange ways the people of Athens, visitors, occupants and invaders have left their imprint on the site. 2. National Archaeological Museum of Athens The Unexpected Greeks will have the National Archaeological Museum unlocked for you and will give you the chance to admire the evolution of ancient Greek art. Presenting some of the most iconic pieces from the vast collection of the museum this is definitely a tour to appeal to art and history lovers. 3. The Museum of the City of Athens Blueblood Athens brings to light a lesser known period of the greek history. Thousands of years after the glorious classical era, the neoclassical period of Athens pays homage to the past. Yet, it is also a fundamental stepping stone to the city’s future evolution. The foundation of the modern Greek Kingdom and the story of the first royal family will reveal you the titanic struggle of the modern city to be reborn from its ashes! Our stories are written by well-known top local professionals in an award-winning concept that focuses on providing original and engaging content.
