Free entry to museums, ancient sites for August full moon


A total of 132 museums and archaeological sites across Greece will be open to the public with free admission for the full moon on the evening of Sunday, August 26, while 95 of the sites are to hold special events from August 24 through 27 including concerts, movie screenings, theatrical shows, poetry readings and guided cultural tours.

Last year’s August full moon events drew more than 75,000 visitors to museums and archaeological sites across the country.

The Culture Ministry has been organizing the full moon initiative since 2002 while this year it forms part of events being organized for European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018.
