Description

Get skip-the-line access to the Acropolis Museum in Athens and dig deep into the history of this ancient Greek wonder. See the Acropolis built in LEGO bricks, walk around archaic statues that have all retained their colors, witness excavated treasures and more!

This fascinating museum contains relics of the Temple of Athena Nike, votive offerings – including Korai, marble statues of young women – and sculptures depicting the Gigantomachy, the battle between the Gods of Olympus and the giants.

Fans of ancient Greece will feel like they're in Elysium, with exhibits covering the period from the 5th century BC to the 5th century AD. Walk around archaic statues and see them from all angles, lit by beams of sunlight.

Learn about the development of the city-state and the country's transition from aristocracy to tyranny and, eventually, democracy. Watch a video presentation about the Parthenon and view the coffered ceiling of the Propylaia from the parapet of the temple of Athena Nike.

This place is a history book in a building. Step inside and discover all you need to know about the cradle of Western civilization.

We loved the modern, classy, and brightly lite style. The outdoor exhibit of the old neighborhood was breathtaking.
