ACROPOLIS MUSEUM

The Acropolis Museum is the museum focused exclusively on the findings of the archaeological site of the Acropolis of Athens. The museum was built to house every artifact found on the rock and on the surrounding slopes, from the Greek Bronze Age to Roman and Byzantine Greece. It also lies over the ruins of a part of Roman and early Byzantine Athens. The museum was founded in 2003. It opened to the public in 2009. Nearly 4,000 objects are exhibited in an area of 14,000 sq. meters.

MUST SEE: A Horse (6th BC), Moschophoros (560 BC), Peplos Kore (c.530 BC), Acropolis Kore (510 BC),
