Athens Museums - The Acropolis Museum in Athens, Greece can be found on Dionysiou Areopagitou Street in the charming area of Makriyianni. Situated on the southeast corner of Acropolis Rock, it was created to house an extensive collection of excavated artifacts that couldn't fit in the previous, smaller museum. Boasting one of the most impressive collections in Greece, the Acropolis Museum features excavated materials from the Acropolis of Athens and other excavated sites around Attica, including the temple of Artemis in Vravrona, southeast of Athens. Designed by renowned New York architect Bernard Tschumi in collaboration with Greek architect Michael Photiades, the museum sits on the Wilhelm von Weiler Building, a historic site constructed in 1836 by a German architect. Spanning over 14,000 square meters, the museum offers an unparalleled experience with more than 4,000 historical objects on display. Visit the Acropolis Museum for an unforgettable journey through Greece's rich history.
