Walking in the ancient neighborhood of the Acropolis Museum

Tuesday, 9 July - Sunday, 29 September, 2019

Visitors, guided by the Museum’s archaeologists, are given the opportunity to wander through the archaeological excavation which stretches underneath the Museum, like a giant exhibit. They will be able to walk on the ancient neighborhood’s streets, take a closer look at the houses with their courtyards and wells, enter the heart of the impressive mansions with the private baths, examine the workshops with the water reservoirs, take a magical stroll through time and the daily life of the people who lived in the shadow of the Acropolis’ rock for over 4,500 years. Read more about the archaeological excavation.
