Friday, 20 June, 2014

On the occasion of its fifth birthday on Friday 20 June 2014, the Acropolis Museum will commence an ambitious digital restoration program of the Parthenon sculptures. Horse riders of the west frieze will be presented in 3D digital images with additions of copper weapons and bridles, with alternating light and color testing.    

On this day, the exhibition areas will remain open from 8 a.m. until 12 midnight. The restaurant will be open during the same hours. On this occasion, admission to the Museum will be reduced (3 euros) for all visitors.

At 9:30 p.m., the Museum will present a music concert in its entrance courtyard of the famous artist Leon of Athens. Visitors will have the chance to listen to their favorite songs from the two albums released so far (‘Futrue’ and ‘Global’), but also remixes of popular songs of the international discography.
