Acropolis Museum Set To Open


My Financial Times colleague Peter Aspden reports: “It stands like a giant modernist spaceship that has belly-flopped by curious accident opposite one of the most important cultural sites on the planet. Polemics and controversy have been hard-wired into its being. It has taken decades in the planning, years in the realisation, and an extra few months beyond its intended inauguration in the fine-tuning. But, finally, the new Acropolis Museum (left) fresh home to the extraordinary artistic legacy of ancient Athens, is ready to open its doors to the public, across from the Parthenon (right).”
