Visit to the National Archaeological Museum with our office.
On a sunny Thursday afternoon, the Keller Williams Athens Center partners put on their comfortable shoes and decided to visit the National Archaeological Museum, the largest museum in Greece and one of the most important in the world.
The museum is housed in an imposing neoclassical building, built in the late 19th century to designs by L. Lange and eventually designed by Ernst Ziller. Its exhibition spaces, dozens of rooms on each floor, cover an area of 8,000 sq.m. and house the five major permanent collections: The Collection of Prehistoric Antiquities , which includes works of great civilizations that developed in the Aegean from the 6th millennium to 1050 BC. (Neolithic, Cycladic and Mycenaean) and findings from the prehistoric settlement of Thira. The Collection of Sculpture Works , which presents the evolution of ancient Greek sculpture from the 7th c. e.g. until the 5th c. AD, through unique works of art. The Collection of Vases and Small Crafts, which includes representative works of ancient Greek ceramics from the 11th c. e.g. up to the Roman era, as well as the Stathatos Collection , a timeless collection of small works of art. The Collection of Metal Works with many unique original works, statues, figurines and small works. Finally, the unique for Greece Collection of Egyptian and Eastern Antiquities with works of art, dating from the pre-dynastic period (5000 BC) to the times of Roman conquest.
It was a day that will surely be unforgettable for the entire team of KW Athens Center.
