Designed by Swiss Architect Bernard Tschumi...
the rectangular concrete, glass, and steel Gallery
is a delight in simplicity of the contemporary meeting.
the ancient treasures of Greece......
Built in the Makryianni district you can
view the Parthenon from the museum as it is located at the southern base of the Acropolis hill.
Time will tell - if - the British Museum will release the "Parthenon Marbles" they have had since the days of the Seventh Earl of Elgin excavations in 1801...
