Athens’ New Acropolis Museum Photos

| May 6, 2009

The new Acropolis Museum has opened right next door to the ancient Acropolis in Athens, Greece. It is a wonder to see the magnificent contrast between the old and the new structures. The Museum was designed by architect Bernard Tschumi, who used both natural light and movement elements in his design. You will see the difference in materials that he used in building, ranging from the glass walls to marble. The museum was built to hold the ancient archaeological findings related to the Acropolis Hill, spanning 2500 years and will include the expected return, from the British Museum, of the Elgin Marbles. Bernard said that “It is a museum inside the city, so we would like to be able to combine the most up-to-date technology and ancient materials”. The Acropolis Museum is expected to be fully opened for visitors in May, 2009. I hope you enjoy these pictures of the completed Acropolis Museum and are tempted to visit it one day. On another note, you should try Corfu holidays, the place is located within country of Greece.

    I love to walk through Museums. This is awesome. Thank you for sending it to me.

  2. This kind of craftsmanship is amazing. Look at this and compare it to all of the plastic and concrete monstrosities we see around us today, but we’re more “civilized” now.
