Visitors wear face masks as they view exhibits at the Acropolis Museum in Athens, Thursday. The museum reopened its doors to the public on June 15 after being closed for almost three months due to coronavirus Covid-19 restrictions. Around 150 people visit the museum each day since the reopening. Before the lockdown, the museum had about 3,000 visitors per day.
The museum celebrates the 11th anniversary since its opening with a special information event for the media. To further celebrate its birthday, the museum is offering visitors a reduced entry fee of 5 euros on Saturday. It will apply to all permanent exhibition areas, as well as the temporary ‘Chisel and Memory‘ exhibition.
