What to expect

Visit the National Archaeological Museum of Athens with a self-guided audio tour on your phone! Listen to the stories of the Ancient Greeks through an award-winning storytelling concept. Your audio tour begins at the Cycladic art gallery. You'll discover the origins of modern abstraction in the bizarre sculptures of a prehistoric civilization.

In the collection of Mycenean antiquities, you’ll discover the golden mask of the mythical king Agamemnon and the Linear B’ clay tablets of Pylos. Later, as you explore the archaic art collection, you’ll admire the smiling statues of the Kouros of Sounion and the graceful Kore Phrasikleia. They will cast their spell on you, but beware of the Sphinx, the notorious beast is lurking behind them!

In the classical antiquity collection, you’ll experience the flawless beauty of ancient Greek art in works of the finest craftsmanship. The antiquities of Thera are also among the museum highlights. Once covered in dust and ashes after a ferocious eruption, these artworks and objects offer a glimpse into a civilization that was forever lost. Finally, your audio tour culminates with some of the most impressive artworks of the Hellenistic and Roman periods.
