"Myth and Coinage" Exhibition at the Numismatic Museum of Athens

Lately I had the opportunity to visit the Numismatic Museum of Athens, in the very center of the city, in order to visit the latest exhibition "Myth and Coinage". It is a joint exhibition in collaboration of the National Archaeological Museum of Athens, the Numismatic Museum of Athens and the Alpha Bank Numismatic Collection , offering a dialogue between Greek Mythology and ancient coinage. I was impressed by the museum ...not only by the number of coins that were on display but also by the friendly and helpful staff in the Museum that assisted me on every question . The photographs I have taken can be viewed in the gallery section of each Olympian god (i.e. goddess Athena ). Also, visit the website of the Museum ( http://www.nma.gr/), where you can find pictures of the majority of the coins and see its highlights in Virtual reality !

The building is huge ( 226,000 square feet - 10 times larger than the old museum) , ultra-modern, full of light and incredibly clean! It displays the Parthenon sculptures, reliefs and artifacts as well as other finds from the Acropolis hill, r eflecting the religious beliefs, the standards and the daily life of the Ancient Greeks . Another great highlight is that, right under your feet, you can see excavations through the glass floor-panels. It's a strange feeling which I really enjoyed. Should you ever happen to visit Athens, I think it's the first place you should consider for a vis
