The Parthenon sculptures at the Acropolis Museum, face to the Acropolis rock and the monument itself.

The Parthenon

Saturday, 17 January, 2015

Why is the Parthenon considered an exceptional monument of world cultural heritage? Why did it grab the attention of both its earlier and current viewers to such a degree? Visitors will discuss issues related to this celebrated monument’s architecture, its decoration and the way in which it is exhibited, its symbolism and its history, with the Archaeologist-Hosts. They will also be able to observe its unsurpassed sculptures from up close, and to admire the temple itself in its natural environment through the transparent wall on the Museum’s third floor. The presentation will be enhanced with the use of models and digital tablets.

The gallery talk 'The Parthenon' is part of the program Alternating Gallery Talks of the Acropolis Museum.
