The National Archaeological Museum

The National Archaeological Museum in Athens is a pleasure to visit! The staff is helpful but unobtrusive ... the employees you encounter patrolling the various galleries are primarily there to keep you from touching the statues or using a flash camera ... otherwise they will let you roam and loiter as you please.
The exhibits are arranged by types and usually presented in a chronological sequence ... the galleries are spacious and well lighted. The artifacts on display range from Cycladic to Late Classical and some of the pieces are in such a pristine state, they look as if they were made yesterday. I personally found the funeral stele to be the most emotionally stimulating of all the exhibits simply because they depicted everyday people in familiar settings ... the statues of the various gods and goddesses are magnificent ... the smaller metal and ceramic pieces demonstrate a level of craftsmanship and artistic insight that will give you goose bumps.
I must apologize for the absence of a detailed explanation for many of the photos in this section but my “system” of taking notes was flawed and ultimately unusable. Instead of giving pseudo explanations or inaccurate information, I have decided to describe each photo simplistically and hope that you can enjoy them as presented.
On my next trip to Athens I plan to do a room-by-room photo tour of the museum and try to present a more dynamic view of what it’s actually like to walk through this outstanding tribute to ancient Greek culture.
