International Museum Day

On Thursday 18 May 2023, the Museum will celebrate International Museum Day with free admission for visitors from 9am to 8pm. This year's theme "Museums, sustainability and quality of life" focuses, among other things, on the role of museums as places of entertainment, creativity and socialization of children, elements essential for their well-being and mental health.

In this context, the Acropolis Museum invites its younger friends to the CHILDREN'S CORNER, a specially designed space on the second floor. There they will find touch screens with fun digital games and enjoyable videos, which bring ancient myths to life, tell fascinating stories and unfold aspects of the daily life of the ancient Athenians.

In addition, families with children can pick up one of the four exploration brochures from the Information Desk and get to know the Museum's exhibits in a fun and creative way, or get the new publication "Ancient occupations in the Acropolis Museum" from the Sales Office and discover exhibits that transport them in an imaginative and entertaining way to the workplaces of the ancient Athenians.
