The Acropolis Museum [Part 1]- a high-end design site in the centre of Athens

 The rock of the Acropolis and the Parthenon remain an eternal symbol of the city of Athens. The Greek capital is admired for its preserved monuments, mythology, art and historic architectural systems. Fortunately, the design scene of the city is becoming richer after the inauguration of the New Acropolis Museum in the summer of 2009.

 Located in the historic of Makriyianni district, the Museum stands less than 1,000 feet southeast of the Parthenon. The top-floor Parthenon Gallery offers a 360-degree panoramic view of the Acropolis and modern Athens. The Museum is entered from the Dionysiou Areopagitou pedestrian street, which links it to the Acropolis and other key archeological sites in Athens.

  The museum was designed-build by Bernand Tschumi Architects with an extensive use of glass ensures breathtaking views of the Acropolis, the surrounding historic hills and the modern city of Athens and immediate views of the archaeological excavation that lies below the Museum, visible through large expanses of glass floor. With the benefit of the changing natural light, visitors can discern and discover the delicate surface variations of the sculptures and select the vantage point from which to observe the exhibits.

You can end your visit by having a coffee or lunch, at the cafe-restaurant of the Museum, enjoying the panoramic view of the Parthenon.
