Athens with Kids at the Acropolis Museum

May, 31, 2019

Last Updated on June 2, 2021 by Celeste

Are you looking for an exciting way to engage your (young) kids in the Athens Acropolis Museum and teach them more about ancient Greece? Are you visiting the Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum and you are looking for an educator expert specially dedicated to kids and their imagination? My kids joined a creative workshop in the Acropolis Museum with storyteller Eleana Paschou.

Edit 2 June 2021: In the summer of 2021, Eleanna’s tours are not taking place.

Exploring the Acropolis Museum

Some years ago, me and some friends from our international school were searching for an interactive Saturday kids activity in Athens in English. We booked a creative workshop designed by Eleana Paschou. On a sunny Saturday morning we met Eleana and her team in the courtyard of the Acropolis Museum. Here we were briefed about the program of that morning and what our children could expect. After, us parents left and had a relaxing coffee with beautiful views over the Acropolis in the museum cafe.

Our kids explored the museum and its ancient artefacts, did all sort of interactive exercises and ended their morning with a creative session in the museum garden. The kids took home a lovely booklet with their drawings, games and more.

I was very impressed with Eleana and her knowledge, more so, with her interaction to the children. Especially educated to engage kids and excite them for what they were going to experience in the museum, Eleana is both creative and progressive in her approach and speaks excellent English. Although I always try to promote parents and kids to participate together in workshops and activities, it was nice to have some time for myself. We parents had lovely discussions and had also time to go around the museum ourselves. If you only visit the Museum Cafe, you do not need to buy an entrance ticket.

Program Kids at the Acropolis Museum

The current program of the interactive workshop in the Acropolis Museum is similar to the one we attended. After a welcome outside at the courtyard of the Acropolis Museum, Eleana and her team explain the children about the rules and the program of the day. Parents can leave and enjoy a coffee or meal at the restaurant of the museum.

During the program, the children will observe the 3D museum, the will be looking for horses, and they will be drawing snakes. Snakes turn into lions, and they will be exploring the second part, up the stairs of the museum. When the children have learned about Hercules and what happened to him when Hera and Zeus invited him at Olympus mountain. Next, the kids will see the statues and listen to mythology stories. After a break for snacks/water/ WC / and to meet their parents (15”), the kids continue to paint with pastels. They will also make a memory photo and have lots of fun dressing up as Olympian gods Athena and Poseidon.
