The Acropolis Museum, one of the most important in the world, includes unique masterpieces, mainly original works of archaic and classical Greek art, which are directly connected to the sacred rock of the Athenian Acropolis. These are free votive sculptures, as well as sets of architectural sculptures that adorned the buildings erected in various historical periods on the Acropolis.
His exhibition sections also include votive and resolution reliefs, pottery such as vases, figurines and reliefs as well as other small items such as bronze votive figurines and utensils. Some of the sculptures of bronze objects and pottery were transferred from the National Archaeological Museum where they were kept. The inscribed works (votive bases, honorary resolutions, lists of the votive offerings of the goddess Athena, building inscriptions of the Erechtheion) were transferred from the Epigraphic Museum and the coins (“treasures”) from the Numismatic Museum of Athens.Important is the gap in the Acropolis Museum of the original sculptures of the Parthenon, which are in European Museums and University collections (British Museum, Louvre, etc.). The Acropolis Museum and its activities are inextricably linked to the archeological site and the restoration works carried out on the monuments of the rock and the slopes of the Acropolis.
