Archaeological Site & Museum Hours in Athens

I’ve always been hesitant to publish something as rapidly changing as opening hours for pretty much anything in Greece.. but since it is an often asked question and I happen to have current information … current at the moment I’m writing that is! I thought I’d share what I’ve found …
