The extended hours of the Acropolis site (above) coincide nicely with the opening hours of the new Acropolis Museum (Tuesday-Sunday: 8 am-8 pm and Friday: 8 am-10 pm).

The Acropolis site will be open daily, except Mondays, from 8 am-7 pm throughout the year, Culture and Tourism Minister Pavlos Geroulanos announced on 18 May, International Museum Day.

In addition, the Culture and Tourism Ministry recently announced that 20 Greek museums and sites are now operating in accordance to the summer time schedule (Archaeological sites: Monday-Sunday 8 am-7 pm and museums: Tuesday-Sunday 8 am-8 pm).

Among museums and sites open on summer hours are the Byzantine Museum in Thessaloniki, the Arch­a­eo­­lo­­gical Museum of Thessaloniki, the Archaeolo­gical Museum of Arta, the Archaeological site of Mycenae and the Archaeological site of Knossos.

Until recently Greece’s museums were still operating on the winter time schedule due to staff shortages. (The summer time schedule usually runs 1 April-31 October. Last year the summer schedule officially began on 2 May, 2010.)
