An adventurous and exciting way to explore Athens' top museum and learn about ancient Greece beyond a traditional guided museum tour. 

Activity Description

The Acropolis Museum is one of the world's most important museums. What makes it important is not just its vast collection of remarkable objects from ancient Greece and the world-famous Parthenon Marbles, but also the unique way in which all objects are displayed and interact with the visitors.

On this Acropolis Museum guided tour, you'll discover that the museum is also home of two Athenians from the Golden Age of Athens, whose everyday lives you'll explore as you move through the exhibits. Their personal stories are hidden in the things they left behind, the artifacts that you will encounter at the museum today. Each item has something to tell you − can you figure out what it is? And what do these stories, these lives, mean to us today? Your expert guide will be there to lead the way through the different galleries and to connect the past to the present through a series of fun activities that will let you discover more about what ancient life was really like. 

As you solve the riddles and take part in the activities, you'll learn about Ancient Greek history and culture. When you've finished this museum adventure, you'll know what made this ancient city so special, and you'll understand, too, the modern relevance of its crowning glory, the Acropolis. In the end, Ancient Greece will have taken on a whole new meaning for you, a meaning that you will have had an active part in shaping!
