This museum has the most impressive collection of Aegean Art from cultures that date back to 3,000 BC. The history of Ancient Greece is beautifully displayed for a visitor's appreciation. If you visit Athens and can visit only one museum, this should be the museum.

The National Archeological Museum is like an ark containing major archeological findings of Greece and the Ancient Greek world, from Prehistoric times to the Roman Period. There is gold from the Mycenean Period (related to the Homeric Trojan War -the findings of Heinrich Schliemann), the...More

Fantastic collection of objects from ancient civilizations, more than I imagined. Many, many items of pottery, huge marble remains of temples, many highly detailed, revealing the various periods of architectural development, particularly Doric and Ionic. Archeological methods detailed. Well worth the time and admittance fee!

I recommend this museum in addition to the Acropolis museum because you will leave the Acropolis museum feeling like there wasn’t that mush there. The real treasures are here and they allow photos where the Acropolis museum does not! Watch your children because the exhibits...More

You can see a lot of artifacts that are not just limited to Athens here. We spent 3-4 hours in this museum and it is really huge. Sculptures are too many that they have to put some outside the museum.

This venue has an amazingly large collection. Though it was somewhat busy when we visited it was easy to get around, and people were very considerate.

If you want to have a face to face experience with some of the most significant classical art masterpieces you must't miss this. You will also be inspired and charmed with many every day life's objects.

We had three hours to see whatever we wished at this museum, and it was a challenge. There is an incredible collection of treasures, especially statues and vases/jugs from a long period of ancient Greece. You have to be prepared to do a lot of...More

Exarchia
Exarchia is in many ways Athens’ best-kept secret,
discovered by relatively few international visitors.
Located behind the main University and Polytechnic
buildings, it is unsurprisingly home to many students,
intellectuals and politicos. This is reflected in the
area’s vibrant street art and graffiti, which seems to
cover almost every inch of wall space. Some of the
best Athenian tavernas are located here, as well as

We were there a couple hours. It totally depends on how much of a history and museum buff you are? Anywhere from couple hours to all day if you have the times and interest.

Yes, you can - and actually have to - leave your big belongings to a cloackroom. I guess it's the same with luggages!
