ΝΑΜ Organising 'Treasure Hunt' in Athens on Sunday, for 150th Anniversary
Thursday, 10 November 2016
Greece's National Archaeological Museum and the Atenistas community have got together to organise an "archaeological treasure hunt" that will take place in Athens this Sunday, as part of a year of events celebrating the 150th anniversary of the museum's foundation.
The activity begins in the city centre on Sunday morning at 11:00, at the Old Parliament building on the corner of Stadiou and Kolokotroni streets near Syntagma, and is scheduled to continue until 16:00. All those wishing to take part in this alternative exploration of the city centre can obtain the map showing the 12 points along the route between 11:00 and 14:00, in order to start their "hunt".
The map will provide information about artifacts discovered in each location and what each area was like in antiquity, as well as outlining how the items were later discovered. Participants in the treasure hunt that collect all 12 stickers along its route can then visit the museum free of charge between 12:00 and 16:00.
