Full Moon musical events at the Acropolis Museum

Thursday, 18 August - Friday, 19 August, 2016

The Acropolis Museum will celebrate this year’s August Full Moon with two special musical evenings:

Thursday 18 August 2016:

On Thursday 18 August, at 9 p.m., the Museum will welcome in its entrance courtyard the well-known Swingin' Cats, with Greek and overseas oldies and dance. The gleeful band that was loved as "Penny & The Swingin' Cats" will take us on a journey to innocent times with an incredible stage presence.

On this day, the Museum will remain open from 8 a.m. to 12 midnight (free entry from 8 p.m. onwards) and visitors will be able to enjoy the permanent exhibition areas but also the temporary exhibition Dodona. The oracle of sounds.

The restaurant of the second floor will be open during the same hours (telephone reservations on +30 210 9000915) and also the ground floor café. From 8 p.m. onwards, other than the special dishes based on traditional recipes, the restaurant will present a famous jazz music ensemble. Musicians include Spyros Rontogiannis on saxophone, George Tsiropoulos on piano and Christos Koromilas on contrabass.
