More and more of the hundreds of thousands visitors to the Acropolis Museum are rediscovering the lure of the works of the ancient world and enjoying the grandeur of the sculptures of classical Greece. The Museum’s objective is to transform such enthusiasm into a more substantial relationship between visitors and this ancient cultural heritage which has remained an inspiration for over 25 centuries. 

Using many different strategies the Μuseum attempts to make visitors real participants in its research program on the interpretation and comprehension of its exhibits.

International recognition of the Acropolis Museum was recently reflected in The Times of London’s research, rating the Museum third amongst the 50 best museums in the world.
