Waltz in the National Archaeological Museum of Athens with a self-guided audio tour on your phone!
Listen to the fascinating stories of the Ancient Greeks through an award-winning storytelling concept. Your audio tour begins at the Cycladic art gallery. There, you will be greeted by the largest Cycladic statuette of the Museum’s impressive collection! You’ll discover the origins of modern abstraction in the bizarre sculptures of a prehistoric civilization. Ready to set out on a riotous journey through the evolution of ancient Greek art?
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 Artemision Bronze is, of course, not to be missed! 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.
This is an arresting encounter with some of the most famed artworks of ancient Greece through an award-winning storytelling concept!

A grumpy man with a PhD. He is fascinated by words; when he sees them forming beautiful sentences he feels like an apprentice wizard who just produced fancy potions out of cauldrons full of frog legs and tears of bats. In his spare time he roams about town or watches anything produced and narrated by Sir David Attenborough, an inexhaustible source of similes. In Canada, he learned to love the cold, but he is much happier working in Athens.
