Η ξενάγηση θα ξεκινήσει από το Μουσείο Σχολικής Ζωής και Εκπαίδευσης και περπατόντας προς το Νέο Μουσείο της Ακρόπολης θα έχουμε την ευκαιρία να το δούμε να λάμπει φωτισμένο κάτω από τον Αττικό ουρανό, ενα ήρεμο απόγευμα, όταν πλέον οι περισσότεροι επισκέπτες θα έχουν αποχωρήσει.

Θα ανακαλύψουμε, με μια διαφορετική λογική, ό, τι καλύτερο έχει να προσφέρει το Νέο Μουσείο της Ακρόπολης και κάποια από τα ενδεχομένως λιγότερο γνωστά αντικείμενα που κρύβουν, ωστόσο, ενδιαφέρουσες ιστορίες.

Ελάτε να ρίξουμε φως σε ερωτήματα, όπως:

Ήταν η Ακρόπολη πάντα το θρησκευτικό κέντρο της Αθήνας;

Ήταν από την αρχή ο Παρθενώνας ο κύριος ναός στην Ακρόπολη;

Ποια η σχέση των «γραφέων» της Ακρόπολης με τα Ομηρικά έπη;

Πού βρίσκεται η έβδομη Καρυάτιδα;

Τι μυστήριο κρύβει η Ζωοφόρος του Παρθενώνα;

Ποιά είναι η αίθουσα με τα χρωματιστά αγάλματα;
