Acropolis Museum marks ninth birthday

The Acropolis Museum in Athens celebrated its ninth birthday on Wednesday with a jazz music concert in its courtyard and a free tour of the temporary exhibition, “Eleusis: The Great Mysteries.”

More than 1.5 million people visited the museum in 2017, while the number of English-speaking visitors surpassed Greeks.

Its president, Dimitris Pantermalis, said that the museum’s reputation is growing around the world through word of mouth recommendations from visitors.

“From personal experience I know that this is the most powerful means to promote the museum abroad,” he said.
