In Athens, Museum Is an Olympian Feat

Even now, not all Athenians are happy with the building, wedged in as it is among apartment buildings in a middle-class residential district. “It is as if a titanic U.F.O. landed in the neighborhood, obliterating all of its surrounding structures,” said Nikos Dimou, a prominent Greek author.

This has been a long wait for the people of Greece across the world. The significance of the Parthenon is more than an ancient marvel as it incorporates architecture but has been a beacon for democracy and knowledge which altered irreversibly the course of mankind.

In the event that people are not aware of the significance of such an event and a civilization which spans over 5,000 years old, i have taken the liberty to place a video which hopefully might expand your knowledge just that fraction more.

Very cool! I have always loved museums and this is a beautiful one with amazing artifacts no doubt. If and when I get to Europe I will most definitely have to visit this place.
I remember going to the Smithsonian when I was 12 and I was in awe and instantly loved museums. I love all the knowledge and history found in them. If I lived near a big one like the Smithsonian I would probably be there all the time...hehe Nice post! Thanks for sharing.
The slide show in the first link has some great pics!

I flew in for the opening and i must say it was breathtaking. What left my jaw sweeping the floor, was that the floor you walk on is glass and show's a city which was escavated and left as it was found. Everywhere you look, either left, right, up or down you see history unfolding. To be honest, i would like to re visit as the time was simply not enough.
