National Archeological Museum
On May 26, 2012, students from our Intermediate 1 and 2 courses visited the National Archeological Museum of Athens, the largest archaeological museum in Greece.
The museum was founded at the end of the 19th century to house and protect antiquities from all over Greece, thus displaying their historical, cultural and artistic value. The Museum's Collections, Prehistoric-Sculpture-Vases and the Minor Arts-Bronze and Egyptian Antiquities, are amongst the most comprehensive in the world and contain finds dating from the 7th millennium BC to the 5th c. AD. Our students had the chance to see the permanent collections, but also The Antikythera Shipwreck, a temporary exhibition.
This visit broadened the students’ knowledge of Greek history and civilization. The day finished with a coffee at the museum's café.
