Visit to National Archaeological Museum
On June 25, 2010, students from our Beginner-level course visited the National Archaeological Museum.
The museum, housed in an imposing neoclassical building from the end of the nineteenth century, is located on Patission Street. Our students had the opportunity to observe the five large permanent collections of the museum: The Prehistoric Collection, the Sculptures Collection, the Vase and Minor Objects Collection, the Stathatos Collection, a corpus of minor objects from all periods, the Metallurgy Collection, and, finally, the only Egyptian and Near Eastern Antiquities Collection in Greece.
This visit broadened the knowledge that our students had of Greek history and civilization and, as a result, classes ended in a most pleasant and constructive way.
