Acropolis Museum Collection
The Art collection found in the Acropolis of Athens has inspired this unique and exclusive collection for the museum store from 2017 and we keep adding new projects every year.
The Museum is an archaeological museum focused on the findings of the archaeological site of the Acropolis of Athens. The museum was built to house every artifact found on the rock and on the surrounding slopes, from the Greek Bronze
Age to Roman and Byzantine Greece. It also lies over the ruins of a part of Roman and early Byzantine Athens. The museum opened to the public on 2009. More than 4,250 objects are exhibited over an area of 14,000 square metres.
