Great experience. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about the history displayed in the museum. The visit to the temple of Zeus and the olympic stadium was amazing, greatly recommended.

The museum was amazing!! There is a lot to see, so give yourself plenty of time. The staff working there was not helpful and very rude.

Athens 3-day Museum Pass

Athens Museum Unlimited Pass
It worked generally very well, *especially* to hop on/off buses. But, the logistics of ticket-pickup need to be clearer: Importantly, while Ivis can issue the 3-day Museum pass, only Key Tours can issue the Acropolis ticket (so we had to spend time going to both places). Also be very aware: when they issue the Acropolis ticket, it starts the clock as Day-1. Why is that important...? Well, we went to Key Tours around 4pm to get the Acropolis ticket for the *next* day, so we could be in the earliest entry at the Acropolis (8am), with our tickets in hand. But then, when Key Tours issued the Acropolis ticket, it activated the 3-day pass, and that day was already over. We had to engage in some strong and pointed conversations, and finally the lady in the office made some adjustment in the system, so our Day-1 started the next day as we wanted. It worked out, but be aware that it's a bit tricky.The final thing I'd say is that 3-days is a bit skinny to see all of the places if you are a museum buff. It's fine if you just want to blast through in 30-60mins. And that's all some place warrant. But some other museums (Acropolis, Nat. Archeology, Benaki,Byzantine and Christian) are worth much more time. Then factor in travel time between locations, and you won't fit them all in, in 3-days.
