The Acropolis Museum is a thematic museum, the collections of which include the findings of only one archaeological site, the Athenian Acropolis. Opened in the summer of 2009, it offers a comprehensive overview of the character and historical course of the Sacred Rock and its slopes.

The exhibition units of the Museum are displayed on four levels:

- On the ground floor are presented findings from the sanctuaries and settlement that developed on the slopes of the Acropolis through all historical periods.

- On the first floor, along a circular route, virtually the entire history of the summit of the Rock unfolds, from the 2nd millennium BC to the end of antiquity.

- On the third floor is arrayed the sculptural decoration of the Parthenon, the largest temple of the Acropolis.

- At the base of the building are the extensive ruins of the ancient Athenian neighbourhood brought to light by the archaeological excavation.
