New Acropolis museum opens for wrong Olympics

You might remember four years ago the panic in getting all the Olympic venues finished for the Athens Olympics, well it was hoped the New Acropolis Museum would open be ready for the thousands visiting for the games, well the Greeks were running a bit late on this project, infact four years late, and it is expected it will open in September just missing the Beijing Olympics, but there is still a chance of delays which might even push the opening date out to early next year. The museum will feature three levels and 25,000 square metres of exhibition space and house some of Greece’s greatest treasures and one day they hope to have on display the Elgin or Parthenon Marbles which are controversially held by the British Museum in London.
