What is going to be done to the old museum now that it is closed already?

I guess that the name of the topic must change. The museum is no longer U/C

If I remember well, the old Acropolis Museum will show a small exhibition regarding the post-antiquity history of the Acropolis monuments and the history of the restoration works. The exhibition will include photos,drawings and gravures. I read somewhere that a small caffe will also function within the building, but there are loads of reactions to that and I am not positive it will ever happen.

Congratulations on the new museum, I hope to visit it soon! Btw, the "Elgin marbles" issue is a sensation these days on Italian newspapers, too.
I have an idea: you Athenians might TAKE Victoria Beckam from the British and store her on some small, uninhabited island in the Aegean sea, and the British, IN EXCHANGE FOR THAT, could give you back the Marbles, the Caryatid etc.. Well just joking they should give them back anyway. But hey, this way you could speed up the process.
Oh wait, the Brits actually LOVE that woman. Hmm. Hang on. Could you possibly silently smuggle the Caryatid out of Britain by disguising her as Victoria Beckham? Hmmmm. Hell no, Victoria is as slim as one Caryatid's leg. I give up.

On second thought, the museum status should stay "U/C" until the British Museum decides to return ( or is legally forced to return, as at seems that the matter will reach the european high court ) the stolen artifacts. Whithout them, the museum isnt complete, the Parthenon isnt complete.
