Acropolis Museum

The Acropolis Museum is an archaeological museum focused on the findings of the archaeological site of the Acropolis of Athens. The museum was built to house every artifact found on the rock and on its feet, from the Greek Bronze Age to Roman and Byzantine Greece. It also lies on the archaeological site of Makrygianni and the ruins of a part of Roman and early Byzantine Athens.

The new building of the museum was founded in 2003 and opened to the public on June 21, 2009. On June 20, 2009, out, majestically, the inauguration of the Museum by the President of the Republic Karolos Papoulias, President of the presence of EU and many foreign leaders. The then Culture Minister Antonis Samaras, in a symbolic gesture, which was broadcast around the world, put piece of marble that was returned from the Vatican Museum, in front of the Parthenon. The move symbolized the Greek request for reunification of the marbles in the new Acropolis Museum. Exposed about 4,000 objects in a space 14,000 square meters.
