Entrance fees to ancient Greek sites, museums to go up as of April 1, 2024

The Central Archaeological Council on Tuesday unanimously approved new entrance fees to archaeological sites and museums in Greece that raise prices, abolish unified tickets for multiple sites, and reduce ticket categories to five levels.

Adjusted prices will be introduced in two phases, the first one starting on April 1, 2024 and the second one on April 1, 2025.

The five new categories of ticketing are as follows:

A. Acropolis of Athens, 30 euros

B. Archaeological sites and museums (over 200,000 visitors), 20 euros

C. Archaeological sites and museums (75,000-200,000 visitors), 15 euros

D. Archaeological sites and museums (15,000-75,000 visitors), 10 euros

E. Archaeological sites and museums (under 15,000 visitors), 5 euros

These ticket prices will be in effect regardless of season, as lower winter prices are abolished.

The five major Greek museums that were turned into independent entities of public interest, will establish their own pricing policy. These include the National Archaeological Museum, the Archaeological Museum of Thessaloniki, the Archaeological Museum of Heraklio, the Byzantine & Christian Museum (Athens), and the Museum of Byzantine Culture (Thessaloniki).

Single tickets for multiple sites will be abolished except for the following sites: Ancient Olympia, Delphi, Mycenae, and Aegae, or where necessary due to spatial considerations.

Free entrance will continue to be offered for EU citizens up to age 25, and for non-EU citizens up to age 25, and reduced ticket prices for EU citizens aged 65+ (October 1-May 31).

A Culture Card will be issued through gov.gr or the local Citizen Service Centers (KEP) for Greek taxpayers, under specific categories.
