Acropolis Museum

 
October 29, 2016   Athens, Greece
 
 

The Acropolis Museum stands in stark contrast to the Archaeology Museum: it's wonderful! A clean, light-filled modern building, steps from its namesake, that is cleverly cantilevered over some of the ruins that it covers. Some of the museum's highlights are glass floors that reveal the ruins underneath the building; clever use of videos to explain exhibits; and a top-floor display that mimics the shape and dimensions of the Parthenon. It's a pleasure to visit. I think it's time the Brits (and French and Italians and Danes) give back their marbles, if for no other reason than the Greeks have built a museum worthy of them.
