The Acropolis Museum Participates in the “Green Cultural Routes”

ATHENS – On Sunday 26 May 2024, the Acropolis Museum participates in the pan-hellenic cultural action titled “Green Cultural Routes”, organized by the Ministry of Culture, offering its visitors the thematic presentation “Exploring nature’s elements at the Acropolis Museum”. Protagonists will be special objects of the Museum that ‘speak’ about the four elements of nature that were reflected into art in different ways. Beliefs, myths, philosophical concerns, as well as simple daily needs find their expression in shape and image in elaborate lamps, mythical demons and ritual vessels. Museum archaeologists tell stories made of fire, earth, air and water -sometimes destructive and other times life-giving – sounding the alarm about the negative interaction between man and nature.

Information:
Sunday 26/5: 10 a.m. in English and 1 p.m. in Greek
Duration: 90 minutes
Participation: This special thematic presentation is offered free of charge and a free admission ticket is required from the Museum Ticket Desk (limited to 30 visitors per session). For you participation, please register online at events.theacropolismuseum.gr.
