The Acropolis Museum
Bernard Tschumi’s 14,000 square-metre glass and concrete landmark was completed in 2009 and consistently ranks on lists of the world’s top 10 museums, both for its contents and design. The highlight is the top floor Parthenon Gallery which ingeniously recreates the Parthenon frieze in all its glory (with copies of sections currently in the British Museum and other collections).
Disabled people with a disability certificate by the Health Ministry or public sector medical report, clearly indicating disability and its percentage are admitted free of charge. In case of 67% disability or more, one escort is also entitled to free entrance.
At the stairs we detect a wall on the left side, which also has a handrail. We go down the stairs, keeping straight until we reach the entrance of the museum.
