A world of emotions

Visitors have the opportunity to view the ‘εmotions’ exhibition together with an Archaeologist-Host and to embark on a tumultuous voyage into the soul of Man, whose passions are here expressed through the filter of ancient art. ‘Emotions’ is a narrative exhibition which sheds light on the unseen world of emotions in the personal, social and political life of antiquity. Exhibits from the world's greatest museums tell stories of emotions in ancient Greek art through the gaze of the Acropolis Museum. Many of the exhibits are unique artworks which are on display in Greece for the first time. Many more from Greek museums are basking in the light of international interest for the first time.
