9 June today.......11 days before the grand opening!!!!!!

I wished i could show you the night images of the museum...The statues are visible inside the glass from the streets around the museum..It is lightfull andglorious and the reflections of the Acropolis monuments next on the glass Parthenon roomis really makes a breathtaking overview....

Since i started this thread I have to be honest ...I never expect the New Acropolis Museum would be so beautifull...
It really presents the glorious classic art of the ancient years, the first footsptes of world and west civilazation.
It is a world museum deisgned to be not only a part of Greece but part of all the citizens of the world...
I hope the British Museum will return soon the Parthenon marbels it has to their home...To the place they have been created and to the place they should be....in piece and in peace with the rest of them...in Athens....

Congratulations to Tscumi and Fotiadis for thei job....
At 20 of June most of presidents and officials of the World will be at the opening ceremony...

"

The new Acropolis Museum will open to the public, on a strictly restricted basis, on Sunday 21 June 2009. On Sunday 21, Monday 22 and Tuesday 23 June 2009, visitors can only enter the museum with an e-ticket – a ticket pre-purchased through the Museum’s website. The Museum website at www.theacropolismuseum.gr is expected to operate from 15 June 2009.

On Sunday 21, Monday 22 and Tuesday 23 June 2009, other than e-ticketing, there will be no other tickets available for entry. No tickets will be sold at the Museum.

From Wednesday 24 June 2009, visitors will be able to gain admission to the Museum with the purchase of a ticket at the Museum, or the pre purchase of a ticket on the Museum website.

From 21 June 2009 to 31 December 2009 the cost of entry for all visitors is 1 euro.

The Museum will open 8.00 a.m. to 8.00 p.m. daily, except for Mondays."

Athens city has already the best building to keep its landmark treasures.....

I invite you all to enjoy it!!!!!

Well I believe it's about time the British gave back to the Athenians what's theirs, i.e. the Parthenon marbles and the Caryatid from the Erechtheion... C'mon it's not that hard.

The interior is incredibly minimal and simple (just glass and concrete) and at the same time, it looks very shiny and luxury...a really wonderfull building which wins with the simplicity and the clearness the visitors..it could be a top destination in Athens , no matter if it would be full or empty!
