The number of columns makes the museum look quite heavy, the rudeness of columns in what looks like archaeological ruins is the worst solution to any museum, goes against the original symbolism of the site.

The museum volume, in general, looks good, but the solution inside the rooms and galleries looks pretty bad, the columns are too intrusive, the artistic pieces lose prominence.

Don't forget that the same statues and artifacts, stood between huge temple columns before 2400 years..Tschumi just wanted to be modern but without loose the spirit of these artifacts and their original context, which all were presents and gifts to ancient gods and in place between numerous marble columns..
Of course, building marble columns in 2000 just to reminf the ancient context would be just kitsch..so the solution of the concrete offers a big advantage, because marble statues look better in a concrete background.

Acropolis Museum open until 10 p.m. on Fridays

(ANA-MPA) -- Starting on Jan. 28 this year, the New Acropolis Museum will henceforth stay open until 10 p.m. on Friday evenings so that visitors can tour the exhibits while also viewing the floodlit Acropolis -- opposite the museum -- at night.

At the same time, the museum will also begin a programme for the conservation and restoration of the Caryatid sculptures - structural columns holding up the temple's porch that were carved to look like young women - from the Erechtheum.



The programme includes using laser tools to clean the sculptures from atmospheric pollution and remove factors causing damage, affix less secure areas of the marble and restore their structure. The museum has chosen not to move them from the gallery during the process, in order to avoid the strain of an additional move. (ANA-MPA) It also hopes to allow visitors to get first-hand experience of procedures that until now took place in inaccessible laboratories. (ANA-MPA)

Wow amazing- another good reason to revisit Greece. BTW, this museum is another valid reason for the Brits to return the Caryatid sculptures.

it is quiet an opinion I have heard from many people which is really good based...but certainly you will change it if you visit the area of the Archaic gallery (big columns)......why??
cause no matter how big are these collumns...the feeling is this....concrete reduce its apearance to the space...while marbel (statues) increasetheir image....white colour over dark grey......= double white.......it is kind of very clever Bernard Tscumi trik........while it is so natural lightfull around....you really miss the collumns and you spot at the statues.....
