About Course

History and teachings
The National Archaeological Museum is the largest archaelogical museum in Greece and one of the most important in the world. Originally destined to receive all the 19th century excavations, mainly from Attica and other parts of the country, it gradually took the form of a central National Archaeological Museum and was enriched with finds from all parts of the Greek world. His rich collections, enumerating more than 11,000 exhibits, offer the visitor a panorama of ancient Greek culture from the prehistory to the late antiquity.

Cross-cultural dimensions
The museum presents to the public antiquities that come from Greece, Cyprus, Egypt, Italy and other regions and represent a panorama of the ancient Greek world, its cultural achievements, as well as its contacts in the eastern Mediterranean.

A number of the antiquities of the Museum’s periodicals travel as short-term loans to museums in Greece and abroad. Since the end of the 20th century, the National Archaeological Museum, in addition to its own multifaceted cultural and educational activity, has participated in numerous exhibitions of Greece and abroad.
