Greece's Acropolis Museum Opens Ancient Excavation Site to the Public

The Acropolis Museum in Athens has opened an excavation site located underneath its modern building to the public for the first time.

Visitors will be allowed to walk through an ancient Athenian neighborhood of excavated houses, workshops, baths, streets and drainage trenches dating back to the Classical era.

"Visitors can come down and see ancient ruins of the city of Athens, especially in the area south of the Acropolis," Acropolis Museum Director Dimitris Pantermalis told Reuters.

"We hope to also present the movable finds of the excavation soon, to give a picture of the daily life of ancient Athens,” he said.
