Undoubtedly an essential, I consider it worth entering the museum first and taking it with a Guide to learn details that we later overlook. and after the museum, go to the acropolis! but that will be in your time and decision. Without a doubt, the museum is beautiful and worth spending a few hours on.

Tickets were sent via email. Just before the actual visit. Everything was fine, you don't have to get nervous here. We didn't use the audio guide, so no information on this. I recommend visiting the museum first and then the Acropolis. I read that before, but didn't listen to it. But it really makes sense.

Skip the line ticket got me into the museum quickly and the exhibits were infinitely more interesting with the audio tour. Not every single item was covered, and sometimes I had to search around a little bit, but the stories and details made history come alive. I particularly enjoyed the explanations of the Parthenon’s pediments and friezes.
