venue

The Workshop will be hosted on the auditorium “Dimitrios Pantermalis” which is located on the ground floor of the building of the Acropolis Museum.

The Acropolis Museum (Greek: Μουσείο Ακρόπολης, Mouseio Akropolis) is dedicated to showcasing archaeological discoveries from the Acropolis of Athens. It was constructed to accommodate artifacts spanning from the Greek Bronze Age to the periods of Roman and Byzantine Greece, gathered from the rock itself and its surrounding slopes. Situated atop remnants of Roman and early Byzantine Athens, the museum was established in 2003 with the Organization of the Museum formed in 2008, finally opening its doors to the public on June 20, 2009. With an exhibition space covering 14,000 square meters, the museum displays more than 4,250 objects.

The Acropolis Museum stands across from the Acropolis on its southeastern side, conveniently accessible via Metro line 2 (the red line). Alight at Acropolis station, then proceed along Makrigianni Street until you reach Dionysiou Aeropagitou, a pedestrianized road. From there, a short 100-meter walk will lead you to the main entrance of the museum area.
