      Mingle with the Gods and Goddesses
      Alison_H, Oct 2023
      Fabulous museum—they have so many original pieces from the Parthenon. Vast collection of Kore and Athena statues along with many other gods and goddesses. Beautiful place with large cafe and two gift shops. Don’t miss this if you are interested in Greek mythology!
      Russ_H, Aug 2023
      The museum was so large and full of incredible information on the historical site. No backpacks unless you are willing to check them with a holder. The ticket is also valid to see the ruins under the museum that were discovered when building the site. Breathtaking history.
      Rachael_A, Aug 2023
      Loved this place. Skip the line was great, did not need it as we went early, but would be a required if went later in the day when the line was so long
      Skip the line is the Way to Go!
      Pat_L, Jul 2023
      museum was terrific! Loved that we were able to just move to the front, scan our ticket, and get in!

      Only issue was receiving the actual tickets only a day before the responded quickly in any case
      Very nice museum
      Kathy_R, Jun 2023
      A lot of history in this museum. Can go through it at your own pace. You can look at the ruins that were found below the building and then go into the museum yourself. Has a cafeteria on the second floor where you can get coffee, drinks, and some food.
      Very Stress to get eTickets
      Steven_R, Jun 2023
      In the end I received the eTickets, but it was very stressful to obtain the eTickets. I was promised the eTickets would be sent by 1 June by the provider, but the never came. I had to reach out to the provider on 9 June the day before I needed to use the eTickets at 0900 hours. After not receiving a response from the vendor, I reached out to Viator, your communication options made it hard to reach Viator. I.was using a eSim data only and couldn’t call the support line. It would have been nice to chat with Viator through your application!! Viator did work with the vendor to get the eTicketsb but initially the urgency was not recognized. Thankfully we received the eTickets in time. Thanks to all!

      Bessi_J, Jun 2023
      Got my tickets 3 hours late and could therefore not use them! Do not recommend this company for traveling.
      Response from Host, Jun 2023
      as per our conversation the tickets were issued but could not be sent as the museum was facing technical issues with the ticketing. We provided you with a booking reference to give to the museum reception so you can enter. This is done with museum's guidance.
      Awful experience--museum e-tickets never arrived; had to buy actual tickets at museum!
      dennis_i, Jun 2023
      Awful experience! Ordered and paid for museum tickets weeks before the intended visit, yet no e-tickets ever arrived! Just kept getting repeated emails stating "This is your voucher. These are not the tickets". Upon arrival at museum, had to pay in cash for actual tickets. Then, AFTER the visit, e-tickets arrived in email. I requested complete refund of previous payment to Viator and received the response "No refund can be given"! I will be appealing this, and if still no refund, asking my credit card company to retract the payment.
      Response from Host, Jun 2023
      Dear Dennis, as per our conversation by email, we would like to address the concerns regarding the ticketing process and provide additional information for your understanding. Firstly, it is important to note that the distribution of tickets is managed exclusively by the museum, and we, as the organization you are contacting, do not have control over their ticketing system. Consequently, any issues pertaining to the ticket delivery lie within the museum's responsibility. As previously acknowledged in our correspondence dated May 31, 2023, at 09:12 PM, the tickets were indeed dispatched prior to your designated visit time. Thus, there was a sufficient duration for you to receive them without the need for downloading and printing. In the event that you encountered difficulties with your hotel's Wi-Fi connection, we would like to highlight that the museum offers complimentary Wi-Fi access. This would have enabled you to log into your account and present the attached tickets to the museum staff directly. Regrettably, the responsibility for checking your email in a timely manner rests with you as the ticket recipient. We are unable to intervene in such circumstances, as it falls outside the scope of our capabilities. Moreover, in reference to your claim that the museum attempted to contact us on June 1st 10:08 am and received no response, we have provided you with our call log as evidence to support our statement. This log will substantiate that we promptly relayed the information to the museum regarding the ticket dispatch on the preceding day. In your initial email, you explicitly mentioned that you did not receive the e-ticket and had to make a payment at the museum. We understand that you expected a seamless experience, and we apologize for any inconvenience caused. Regarding the museum staff's attempt to contact us, as stated above, the log shows that we did answer their call. Also, to provide further evidence of the ticket being sent to you on the previous day, we have included screenshot in our email. These screenshots serves as proof that the ticket was indeed sent to you, indicating that the service was provided as intended. Additionally, we have demonstrated through our previous messages that we responded to the museum's call, contradicting the claim that there was no response from our end. We value your review and appreciate your honesty based on your personal experience. However, as per the terms and conditions that you agreed to, since the ticket was sent to you on time, we have fulfilled our obligations. It is regrettable that you were unable to retrieve the ticket, whether it was due to oversight or a poor internet connection at your hotel. Please note that we are open to any further claims or feedback you may have. We have maintained a written record of our conversations, which serves as proof that we indeed sent you the ticket on the previous day. However, we understand that your experience was not satisfactory, and we apologize for any inconvenience caused. If there is anything else we can assist you with or if you have any additional questions, please feel free to let us know. We are here to help resolve any outstanding concerns to the best of our abilities. Kind regards

      What a view of history! Amazing reconstruction of missing pieces, one could tell because of the different color and materials. Must say, out door signs of skip the line, pre purchased group ticket, and purchase tickets would be helpful. Special school days and or times for children would also help. As some elderly people can’t handle the noise and rush. Cafe sandwich was just enough for hubby and I to share.
      More time to explore instead of waiting in line for tickets
      Carol_D, May 2023
      Skip the line is always the best especially in such a crowded attraction. We were able to go right in and start exploring!
      A great addition to visiting the Acropolis
      Francis_B, Apr 2023
      The history of the period was presented really clearly, and the exhibition items were well spaced - not over crowded.
      Beware--never received the tickets, no communication from company!
      Lawrence_R, Sep 2021
      This was unfortunately my one bad experience during a 2-week stay in Greece. I bought these "skip the line" tickets to save time and streamline my visit--but it had the opposite effect. I never received the tickets. I tried to contact the tour company, since they said I should specify my desired start time. They did not respond to direct messaging. When I arrived in Greece, I also called--but they do not pick up. I finally just went to the museum, and the staff there also had no record. But thanks to the wonderful ticketing manager on duty--she actually called the company, and also got no response. After some back and forth, the museum finally comped me the tickets and said they would take it up with the company. But it was frustrating and time consuming, and only saved by the great museum staff. Don't buy through this provider!
      Response from Host, Oct 2021
      Dear Lawrence, you contacted us and asked us to visit the museum at 3 pm. We replied to you on the same day confirming the visit time and we sent you the final tickets 1 week before your visit.
      Absolute Must Buy
      Lisa_M, Jul 2021
      A visit to the museum is an absolute must and as the queues to buy tickets are so long it's a no-brainer to buy this "skip the line" ticket - it was only 2 euros more than the nomal entrance price of 10 Euros

      Carmen_G, Oct 2022
      El museo es imprescindible para completar la visita hecha a la Acrópolis, y trasladarte con la imaginación aquellos tiempos. Fácil para hacerlo en el mismo día pues no está a mucha distancia de esta. Con viator fue fácil conseguir las entradas lo que recomiendo si se quiere evitar largas colas. Si eres de los que te gusta ver las cosas con tranquilidad y te llevará toda la mañana visitar ambas cosas.
