On June 20, the Acropolis Museum is celebrating its fourth birthday. The exhibition areas and the restaurant will remain open from 8 a.m. until 12 midnight. For the occasion, admission will be reduced to three euros for all visitors.
Visitors will be given the opportunity to discover, together with the museum’s archaeologist-hosts, untold stories of the surviving blocks of the frieze, with the aid of 3D presentations on special screens installed in the Parthenon Gallery.
At 9 p.m., the Athens Municipality Philharmonic Orchestra will present a musical concert in the Museum’s entrance courtyard with famous melodies of the world band repertoire.
Moreover, the Museum will commence the exclusive production of copies of two exhibits, the head of Poseidon as well as the head of Artemis from the east frieze of the Parthenon, available in the museum shops.
