An e-visit to the New Acropolis Museum, Athens

Dear friends
You are invited to enjoy together with us an e-visit to the New Acropolis Museum. In our eyes it seems to be a real jewel of modern architecture. Much more, for its possibility to act like a mirror representing the Sacred Hill.

    Thanks for sharing Vicky. Where did the curators of this modern museum find all the statues, the pillars, the sculptures…?
    Impressive work of preservation. :-)
    Maybe in a 7000 years from now I will think this new Museum is as spectacular as the ancient Acropolis :-)
    Nice virtual visit though :-)

    Unfortunately, not all the ancient objects are found. In their place there are replicas reminding to visitors the continuous struggle of Greeks to get the original ones back from the British Museum of London.

    Unfortunately,
    if someone wants to see the real Parthenon , he or she will have to go to Athens and to London…
    as a great part of it is there…
    Even if we have now a really safe and modern and beautiful Museum…
    Why?

    Well I know it’s a pity, Marika. I feel the same. When I spent 2 years in the States, I visited many museums in Manhattan. How great was my surprise when I saw “The Cloisters”! A beautiful and peaceful place at the tip of Manhattan, it had been imported entirely from Europe stone by stone!!! Incredible that it should now exist in New York and not any more in the places in Europe the different parts of the buildings originally belonged. I was amazed.
