The Acropolis Museum Ready to Open Its Gates

ATHENS — "The Acropolis Museum is looking forward to reopening its gates to the public on May 14," Stamatia Eleftheratou, Director of Collections and Exhibitions of the Acropolis Museum said on Thursday to the Athens-Macedonian News Agency (ANA).

"However, this period gave us the opportunity to restore a number of ancient works or to exhibit some others but mainly to complete a large project, the Digital Acropolis Museum. It is a diverse programme, with many sectors, one of which was the creation of the new website, the launch of which coincided with the lockdown period, giving the Museum the opportunity to address, if not its physical, at least its digital audience, which is just as big," she added.

Eleftheratou explained that "the new website of the Acropolis Museum is not a simple website. It is an entire world, which captures the life and activities of the museum. It is also the first museum website in Greece in which all the exhibits of the Acropolis Museum have been posted. That is, the visitor can find for each exhibit a description, a rich bibliography and plenty of supervisory material, ie pictures and videos – where they exist. Also, our website has a web-page that is addressed specifically to children, with rich activities and imaginative videos and games. In addition, a series of digital applications, interactive and video, was created, which the visitor can view in the physical space of the Museum, but also on the internet," she said.

Mission…to Alonnisos, a TNH Documentary

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
