Athens National Archaeological Museum

Highly recommended
Boasting one of the finest collections anywhere, this museum was founded in 1834. Devoted to ancient art from the Neolithic to the Roman era, its revamped interior displays the main works of art from the major Greek archaeological sites. Admire the famous golden mask of Agamemnon, the Sounion Kouros, the Artemision Bronze, the Jockey of Artemision, the Cycladic idols, the great Eleusian relief, the polychrome frescoes of Akrotiri, the Antikythera mechanism, to name but a few.
