National Archaeological Museum
44 Patission Street
In celebration of the 150th anniversary since its foundation, the National Archaeological Museum launched an exhibition titled “Odysseys,” inspired by Homer’s epic. The show, which runs to October, 2017, features 190 displays that highlight humanity’s constant need to explore new land, exchange ideas and construct organized societies. Opening hours are Mondays from 1 to 8 p.m. and Tuesdays to Sundays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
One hundred and eighty-four works that come either from the permanent exhibition or the rich storerooms of the Museum's Collections and six loans, three from the Epigraphic Museum and three from the Acropolis Museum, are presented in an enchanting sequence of cultural stratification, enabling the visitor to discern the differences and changes and simultaneously detect those elements that reside and remain unaffected in time and constitute the shared imprint which man has left on the centuries, the ages and the civilizations.
Three thematic axes run through the exhibition narrative:
