Before the Athens 2004 Olympics
we were among the first people to visit the newly rennovated National
Archaeological Museum. It was really a treat to see the ancient
statues, pottery, jewelry, weapons and utensils in their new improved
surroundings. Since then they have opened another wing and
have hundreds if not thousands of other artifacts on display. This
page will give you an idea of what is in store for you at the National
Museum of Athens, one of the best, if not the best archaeology museums
in the world. This should be on your list of places not to miss
while in Athens, Greece. Be sure to see the Antikithira device, an ancient computer, which was on display elsewhere when I took these photos.
