The Museum invites visitors to “wander the paths of knowledge” concerning the statue, the materials and techniques used for its construction, the myths and allegories that surround it, its radiance and its adventures.

Presentations on the lost statue of Athena Parthenos will be given by museum archaeologists-guides in Greek at 13:00 and in 11:00 in English.

Visitors can register to attend at the museum’s information desk on the day, half an hour before the start of the presentation. Attendance is limited to 30 visitors per session, on a first-come, first-served basis, while it is necessary to also obtain a general admission ticket to the museum (five euros).
