25 March at the Acropolis Museum

Saturday, 25 March, 2017

On the occasion of the Greek National Holiday on Saturday 25 March 2017, entry will be free for all visitors at the Acropolis Museum. The Museum exhibition areas will be open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.

At 1 p.m., the Museum President, prof. Dimitrios Pantermalis will present to visitors the replica of Kore 685, on which the Swiss painter E. E. Gilliéron (1885-1939) applied ancient colors 100 years ago, based on the drawing of his father and also painter, L. E. Gilliéron (1850-1924). The latter was made right after the discovery of the sculpture in 1888, southwest of the Parthenon.

On the same evening, at 7 p.m., video excerpts from composer’s George Kouroupos musical project “Voice of oak” will be shown in the temporary exhibition hall “Dodona. The oracle of sounds”, next to the exhibition’s artificial oak. The project “Voice of oak” is inspired by the prophetic oak at Dodona.

On the same day, the Museum restaurant will serve a ‘Greek Traditional Meal’.
