National Archaeological Museum (Ethniko Archaiologiko Museo), Athens

Close

National Archaeological Museum, Athens

You don’t need to be an anthropologist to enjoy the stunning exhibits at the National Archaeological Museum. Considered one of the top 10 museums in the world and the most important for Ancient Greek art, you will get a sense of the sweep of Greek history by walking through this spacious and well-laid out museum. The floors are organised so you start in the prehistoric Neolithic period, pass through the Bronze Age, classical period, Hellenistic period and end in the Roman era.

Important exhibits include the gold Mycenaean funeral mask dubbed the Mask of Agamemnon, found in the 19th century by Heinrich Shliemann, the father of archaeology. A must-see is the world-calibre Egyptian Collection containing exquisite artefacts not to be found elsewhere: rare statues, nine mummies from the era of the Pharaohs, ancient bird eggs and a 3,000-year-old loaf of bread with a bite missing!

When you’re done here, be sure to visit the Acropolis Museum for the Parthenon Friezes and maiden Caryatids. Or head to the Acropolis and walk in the footsteps of the ancient Greeks!
