Athens Adventure: The Acropolis Museum

Another public holiday meant another trip abroad for the Stolls. This time, it was a 3-day weekend in Athens and our first stop was the new Acropolis museum. A very nice museum and it gives you a good introduction and orientation of the Acropolis and Parthenon as well as some of the other ruins in the area. A good place to start our weekend adventure.
 We couldn't take any photos once inside, which is a shame as it's a really cool museum. Here is the main entrance. The museum is built over an active excavation site so you walk on a glass floor to see the ruins below. Eventually the area underneath will be open for visitors as well.

The museum was literally just around the corner from our hotel, so an easy walk and a really nice start to our trip.
