An Acropolis staged in a museum.
Dedicated to archaeology, the Museum of the Acropolis of Athens houses exclusively the works, ruins and vestiges found during the famous archaeological digs conducted from the XIXth Century on. Thus, the museum is home to the Statue of the Calf-Bearer, a collection of kores, the 'Mourning' Athena and fragments from the facade of the ancient Temple of Athena.
These sculptural groups were taken from the monuments of the Acropolis and are religious works which were left by the worshippers. The works are presented in chronological order and allow for a full grasp of the evolution of Greek sculpture.
