European Heritage Days: Free admission to Greek public museums and archaeological sites.

Entry to State Archaeological Sites, Museums and Monuments will be free on weekends on the occasion of the European Heritage Days. The annual pan-European event will also be celebrated in Greece on September 24-26, the culture ministry said Thursday.

This year, the main theme of the holidays on the European continent is “Heritage: All Inclusive”.

In Greece, two separate themes were announced: “Train Ride” for the Year of European Railways 2021 and a special look at the life and work of Ioannis Kapodistrias, the first President of Greece since independence from the Ottomans, in the context of the bicentennial of the Greek Revolution of 1821.

Some events will be broadcast live and will also be posted on social media pages as part of European Heritage Days in Greece on Facebook and Instagram

European Heritage Days are held every September in the 50 signatory countries of the European Cultural Convention and are organized in close collaboration with national coordinators in each country, including local authorities, civic and private groups and volunteers.

It was previously announced that the Acropolis, which will also offer free admission this weekend, will close to the public at 5:30 pm in conjunction with an EU event there.
