The Acropolis Museum provides educational programs and activities for students in both primary and secondary school, for the year 2013-2014. Its programs aim to bring schools and students into close contact with ancient Greek civilization and the Museum exhibits.
Educational programs for schools are available in Greek only. The Museum suggests the following programs for teachers and students.
Students watch a short film presentation on the Parthenon and its sculptural decoration, and then visit the Parthenon Gallery.
The Museum provides students with a special booklet to support their understanding of the sculptures and their participation in workshops.
A presentation by Archaeologist-Hosts is designed to introduce school groups to the Museum highlights (50 students per group).
The Seminar for Teachers addresses educators from all school levels and provides information on the educational programs offered by the Museum. The seminar outlines a proposed tour that teachers can follow when accompanying students during a school visit.
On a daily basis, the Museum receives approximately 50 students every hour. It is necessary for school groups to be accompanied by at least 2 teachers. Admission is free for children under 18 years old and teachers accommodating schools groups.
