The full moon, which will rise over the Parthenon and shine brightly in the night sky in Athens on Thursday 15th August 2019, is a sight not to be missed!
Celebrating the lunar phase when the Moon appears fully illuminated from Earth’s perspective, the Acropolis Museum invites locals and visitors to partake in a courtyard musical celebration.
The Acropolis Museum will be open to the public with free admission from 8pm for the full moon tonight.
Local musicians Eirini Toumpaki, Andreas Lafis, Maria Anamaterou and Sotiris Karistinos will perform popular songs from several prominent Greek singers, including George Dalaras, Haris Alexiou and Dionysis Savvopoulos.
Visitors will also have the opportunity to stroll around the museum’s temporary exhibition, “Chisel and Memory,” which showcases almost half a century’s worth of photographs that depict marble craftsmen restoring major monuments, until midnight.
Just incase your stomach also gets hungry from all the excitement, the second-floor restaurant and ground-floor cafe will be open until late.
This event is apart of Greece’s August full moon celebration, organised by the Ministry of Culture and Sports, and the Acropolis Museum’s 10-year anniversary.
Admission to the Acropolis Museum before 8pm will cost visitors 10 euros.
