Major museums making stilted progress

In leading museums abroad, visitors are honored guests. Everything – from the quality and lighting of the exhibits to the museum shop and the cafe – has made to please them. Museums in Greece try to be visitor-friendly, but the obstacles they face are apparent the moment one steps inside. It is a transitional period, as Kathimerini found out upon an inspection of the Athenian «museum mile» on Vassilissis Sofias Avenue, and elsewhere in Athens and Thessaloniki.
