An exhibition in the right context
Do you want to get an idea of where the Acropolis sculptures are housed in relation to the Acropolis? The construction of the Acropolis Museum represents an investment of 130 million euro and is the definitive exhibition hall for all the Acropolis sculptures together. Designed to link the exhibits with their archaeological context, the museum opened in 2009, giving visitors the opportunity to see artefacts in direct view of the monument.
