Walking in the ancient neighborhood of the Acropolis Museum
On Tuesday 9 July 2019, the Acropolis Museum launches a new cycle of presentations titled ‘Walking in the ancient neighborhood of the Acropolis Museum’. Visitors, guided by the Museum’s archaeologists, will be given the opportunity to wander through the archaeological excavation which stretches underneath the Museum, like a giant exhibit. They will be able to walk on the ancient neighborhood’s streets, take a closer look at the houses with their courtyards and wells, enter the heart of the impressive mansions with the private baths, examine the workshops with the water reservoirs, take a magical stroll through time and the daily life of the people who lived in the shadow of the Acropolis’ rock for over 4,500 years.
