A Peek At the New Acropolis Museum

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA)    The BBC News website hosts a five-minute video of a “Preview of the New Acropolis Museum.” The President of the Organisation for the Construction of the New Acropolis Museum, Archaeology Professor Dimitrios Pandermalis and BBC’s correspondent in Athens, Malcolm Brabant, take a stroll on the premises of the New Acropolis Museum and visit the Hall reserved for the Parthenon Marbles (those in Athens and copies of those in the British Museum) as well as the specially designed, transparent floor where a visitor can walk on the ruins of ancient and Byzantine Athens. Professor Pandermalis highlights the advantages of the space selected for the construction of the Museum given the view that it offers towards the monument of Acropolis. The Museum is scheduled to open its gates to the public in autumn.
