Since opening its doors, the Acropolis Museum has highlighted the close relationship between the famous sculptures it displays and the monuments from which they originate. The museum is hosting an exceptional exhibition of photographs of the marble craftsmen of the Acropolis at work. Imbued with a new curatorial spirit, the exhibition was initially organised by the Committee for the Conservation of the Acropolis Monuments and the Acropolis Restoration Service. The exhibition takes place on the ground floor temporary exhibition gallery. Free entry
