New family backpack at the Acropolis Museum

Friday, October 28, 2016

On the occasion of the Greek National Holiday of Friday 28 October 2016, the Acropolis Museum invites families with kids from 8 to 12 years old to discover the Parthenon Gallery with the aid of the new backpack “The Parthenon Sculptures”. Through the specially designed printed material and games, kids can enjoy their visit and learn about the exhibits in a creative way, while discussing with their parents. The backpack is available in Greek and in English. Families can borrow backpacks from the Museum’s Information Desk by leaving an identification card.

On 28 October the Acropolis Museum will be open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. with free entry, and visitors will be able to enjoy the permanent exhibition areas but also the temporary exhibition ‘Dodona. The oracle of sounds’.

Like every Friday, visitors will be able to participate in the following gallery talks held by the Museum Archaeologist-Hosts: ‘Dodona. The oracle of sounds’ (at 1 p.m. in Greek and at 11 a.m. in English) and ‘A walk through the Museum with the archaeologist’ (at 8 p.m. in Greek and at 6 p.m. in English).

The Museum restaurant on the second floor will be open until 12 midnight offering special dishes based on traditional recipes and jazz live music from 8 p.m. onwards. For reservations, please contact the restaurant during Museum opening hours on +30 210 9000915. Visitors not wishing to dine at the restaurant are welcomed for a cold dish or dessert in a special restaurant area without reservation.
