Family trails

Explore the Acropolis Museum as you follow original "paths" with the help of leaflets designed for children and parents. The leaflets – which are age-specific and vary in their subject matter and level of information – help children become familiar with the Museum's premises, appreciate some of its masterpieces and cultivate their observation skills, memory and imagination while also having fun. You can acquire the exploration leaflets from the Information Desk during the Museum’s regular days and hours of operation. These materials have been created in collaboration with the Education Team of the Acropolis Restoration Service (YSMA).
