Free Museums, Free Archeological Sites

In honor of World Tourism Day, the Ministry of Culture opens all government operated museums and archeological sites for free! This year, that will be Monday, September 27, 2010 … mark your calendar!

This also coincides with the end of the European Heritage Days Weekend, September 24 – 25 & 26, 2010, when numerous sites and museums are open to the public for free in an effort to entice the locals to “get in touch” with their heritage. Friday will be packed with schoolkids, but take advantage of this if you’re in Athens since there will also be lots of special activities happening ’round the sites and the historic center.
