Best things to do in Athen

History Museum
“This dazzling museum at the foot of the Acropolis' southern slope showcases its surviving treasures. The collection covers the Archaic period to the Roman one, but the emphasis is on the Acropolis of the 5th century BC, considered the apotheosis of Greece's artistic achievement. The museum reveals layers of history: ruins are visible in its floor, and, through floor-to-ceiling windows, the Acropolis is always visible above. The surprisingly good-value restaurant has superb views; there’s also a fine museum shop.”

“The Benaki Museum, established and endowed in 1930 by Antonis Benakis in memory of his father Emmanuel Benakis, is housed in the Benakis family mansion in downtown Athens, Greece. The museum houses Greek works of art from the prehistorical to the modern times, an extensive collection of Asian art, hosts periodic exhibitions and maintains a state-of-the-art restoration and conservation workshop. Although the museum initially housed a collection that included Islamic art, Chinese porcelain and exhibits on toys, its 2000 re-opening led to the creation of satellite museums that focused on specific collections, allowing the main museum to focus on Greek culture over the span of the country's history.”

“The Archaeological Museum of Syros is one of the oldest in Greece and is located in the Ermoupolis Town Hall, which is the biggest building in the Center Plaza of Syros. Although not a very rich collection, one may find inside the Museum interesting artifact from prehistoric ages not only from Syros but also from other islands around. If you have seen around the islands in the souvenirs the tall white marbled guy, that's where the original one is. ”

“The National Museum of Contemporary Art, or 'EMST,' is a work of art itself, housed in an old beer brewery and remodeled as a prime example of post-war Greek modernism. Meander through temporary and permanent exhibitions and take in the setting to feel the pulse of contemporary Greek culture. The museum often hosts international artists and exhibitions as well.”
