About the National Archaeological Museum

Athens National Archaeological Museum is the largest archaeological museum in Greece. It contains the most extensive collection of classical Greek artifacts in the world. Sooner or later, anyone with interest in Greek history is likely to end up here. It's no wonder it's one of the city's most visited tourist attractions.

The current museum was built in 1889. During World War II, the treasures housed inside were boxed up and buried to protect them from destruction and looting by soldiers. The museum has been expanded several times through the years, with the latest expansion in 2008 making room for an impressive collection of Egyptian artifacts.

The museum's collection covers the Neolithic era, the Greek Bronze Age, Mycenaen civilization, one of the world's best collections of Egyptian artifacts, and of course, art and objects from the classical and Hellenistic periods of Greece. Highlights include the mask of Agamemnon, the famous statue of Pan, Aphrodite, and Eros, and the mysterious Antikythera Mechanism, a kind of early mechanical computer.

The museum is in the Exarcheia area of central Athens, just to the north of the Acropolis and many of Athens' other central attractions. This makes it easy to visit as part of an Athens trip.

A funicular railway carries passengers to the top of the hill, and an open-air theater at the summit occasionally hosts concerts and other performances.
  • Live like a local at the Central Municipal Athens Market. This is where native Athenians come to do their shopping, and it's a great place to pick up ingredients for a picnic lunch.

  • Add to your own collection at Monastiraki flea market. This bustling market is the place to pick up the strange items you never knew you needed. Artillery shells carved by World War I soldiers sit side-by-side with midcentury modern furniture, vintage clothing, and vinyl records.
