Useful information for visitors with disabilities


Visitors with disabilities from both EU and non-EU countries and an individual accompanying them are entitled to free admission on presentation of the required identification.


All public areas of the Museum are wheelchair accessible. Both the main entrance of the Museum (Dionysiou Areopagitou 15) and the side entrance (Makriyianni 2-4) have a special ramp for wheelchairs and strollers. All of the Museum’s levels have elevator access and toilets for individuals with disabilities. The Museum therefore encourages visitors to use their own wheelchairs if they have one. Otherwise, wheelchairs are available for use free of charge, from the information desk at the entrance of the Museum, on provision of identification.


Guide and assistance dogs are welcome inside the Museum.


The Museum Guide is available in Braille (Greek and English) for loan at the Museum's Information Desk.


Individuals with disabilities can direct questions, make comments and express opinions on the exhibits to the Museum’s Archaeologist-Hosts. An Archaeologist-Host is available at a designated location in the Archaic Acropolis Gallery, on Monday (summer season hours, 1 April - 31 October: 10:00a.m. - 4:00p.m. & winter season hours, 1 November - 31 March: 10:00a.m. - 5:00p.m.) and on Wednesday - Saturday (10:00a.m. - 5:00p.m.). At this spot, visitors have the opportunity to look at and handle materials, tools, experiments, and imitations of ancient works of art associated with the Museum’s collection and antiquity.
