National Archaeological Museum, {CATEGORY}

Renovated and expanded just before the 2004 Olympics, this is the museum to see if you only have time to see one museum when you are in Athens. Considered one of the top 10 museums in the world, its collection of ancient Greek antiquities is unrivaled and stunning even to those of us that have been there quite a few times. The Akrotiri frescoes are in display again (after being damaged in the 1999 earthquake and removed) as are two new items: two ancient treasures that have been returned to Greece by the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles - a 4th-century B.C. gold wreath and a 6th-century B.C. marble statue of a young woman's torso. In order to appreciate the museum and its many treasures, try to be at the door when it opens, so you can see the exhibits and not the backs of other visitors. Early arrival, except in high summer, should give you at least an hour before most tour groups arrive, alternatively, get here an hour before closing or at lunchtime, when the tour groups may not be as dense. If you can come more than once, your experience here will be a pleasure rather than an endurance contest. The Mycenaean Collection includes gold masks, cups, dishes, and jewelry unearthed from the site of Mycenae by Heinrich Schliemann in 1876. Many of these objects are small, delicate, and very hard to see when the museum is crowded. Don't miss the stunning burial mask that Schliemann misnamed the "Mask of Agamemnon". Archaeologists are sure that the mask is not Agamemnon's, but belonged to an earlier, unknown monarch. Also not to be missed are the stunning Vaphio cups, showing mighty bulls, unearthed in a tomb at a seemingly insignificant site in the Peloponnese. If little Vaphio could produce these riches, what remains to be found in future excavations. The museum also has a stunning collection of Cycladic figurines, named after the island chain. Although these figurines are among the earliest known Greek sculptures (about 2,000 B.C)., you'll be struck by how modern the idols' faces look compared to those wrought by Modigliani. One figure, a musician with a lyre, seems to be concentrating on his music, cheerfully oblivious to his onlookers. If you are fond of these Cycladic sculptures, be sure to take in the superb collection at the N. P. Goulandris Foundation Museum of Cycladic Art. The museum's staggeringly large sculpture collection invites you to wander, stopping when something catches your fancy. We stop for the bronzes, from the tiny jockey to the monumental figure variously identified as Zeus or Poseidon. Much ink has been spilled trying to prove that the god was holding either a thunderbolt (Zeus) or a trident (Poseidon). And who can resist the bronze figures of the handsome young men, perhaps athletes, seemingly about to step forward and sprint through the crowds?
