If you’re going to the Acropolis, go to the museum beforehand or get some education online beforehand as there isn’t much available once you’re there at the Acropolis.
If you decide to go to the museum, go straight to the second floor and watch the two videos available before you look at the artefacts on display, it’ll give you some background knowledge to let you know what you’re seeing.
They sell two tickets , one is 20$ the other is 30$...we bought the 30$ ticket and didn’t really make use of it. Students and kids 18 and younger get in for free, so bring identification for them .
The museum it’s self is decent enough, the information provided is sufficient , but the vast majority of the Acropolis artefacts are on display in a British museum and I found that ridiculous. They should be where they belong , in a Greek museum .
After visiting the museum you will have a better understanding and appreciation for the Acropolis .

All findings of the Akropolis are here. It is very well explained and documented, even with pictures and diagrams. If you love art & history , you must forecast the whole day spent here. I visit it several times, since it is huge, and every time you discover a new corner that didn't notice the previous time.
Cafeteria inside.
Metro almost inside the museum.

If you visit the Acropolis, this museum is a must. You will understand more of the Greek history with their interesting exhibits and well-written explanations. The museum is well-organized and impressive. We really enjoyed looking down at the excavations covered with glass even as you are standing in line to get tickets.

The acropolis museum is a must see in Athens. It really helped to enhance our understanding of the history of athens, the acropolis and greece as a whole. The exhibits are spectacular. I especially recommend the 15-or-so minute long video on one of the upper floors explaining the various aspects of the parthenon itself as well as about the various disasters that befell it.
