Venus in a gold bikini. An unexpected visitor at the Acropolis Museum.


The Acropolis Museum, on the occasion of the International Women’s Day, on 8 March 2023, commences a new series of exhibitions titled "Temporary and unexpected visitors", including artwork from other world museums, that the Acropolis Museum will host periodically, either in relation to a celebratory event, or unexpectedly, thus enriching visitors' aesthetics and knowledge.

On the same day last year, the Museum focused on the intellectual contribution of female poets in antiquity, presenting works by Lena Platonos and performed by Maria Farantouri.

This year, the Museum focuses on female beauty, presenting a work of sculpture that captivates us by the peerless pulchritude of Aphrodite, the goddess of beauty, to whom Paris, as a judge of three goddesses, offered the apple of discord to the Fairest of them all, the fairest of form among the three. This year’s unexpected visitor is the sculpture “Venus in a gold bikini”, from the National Archaeological Museum of Naples. This great artwork will be displayed in the Museum ground floor from 8 March until 28 May 2023.

Entrance to the Museum ground floor is free. During this exhibition, a video will be on display and a free bilingual explanatory leaflet will be available for visitors.
