The New Acropolis Museum

THE NEW ACROPOLIS MUSEUM

The Acropolis Museum is an archaeological museum focused on the findings of the archaeological site of the Acropolis of Athens. The museum was built in order to house every artifact found on the rock and on its feet, covering a large period of time, from the Greek Bronze Age to Roman and Byzantine Greece but lies also on the archaeological site of Makrygianni, ruins of a part of Roman and early Byzantine Athens.

I am totally wanting to see this museum. I wish I go to museums more. I hope to change that this summer (too bad I don’t know enough people who would like to go to museums).
