About Course

History and teachings
The Acropolis Museum is a thematic museum, the collections of which include the findings of only one archaeological site, the Athenian Acropolis. Opened in the summer of 2009, it offers a comprehensive overview of the character and historical course of the Sacred Rock and its slopes.

The exhibition units of the Museum are displayed on four levels. On the ground floor are presented findings from the sanctuaries and settlementthat developed on the slopes of the Acropolis through all historical periods. On the first floor, along a circular route, virtually the entire history of the summit of the Rock unfolds, from the 2nd millennium BC to the end of antiquity. On the third floor is arrayed the sculptural decoration of the Parthenon, the largest temple of the Acropolis. At the base of the building are the extensive ruins of the ancient Athenian neighbourhood brought to light by the archaeological excavation.

Cross-cultural dimensions
The exhibits of the Acropolis Museum often travel in other parts of Greece and the rest of the world. Their presence in temporary exhibitions organized by the Museum or other bodies contributes in the promotion of values and ideas of Greek culture and its artistic and social achievements. Furthermore it contributes in creating relations of mutual understanding, dialogue and collaboration between different people.
