ACROPOLIS MUSEUM

The silhouette of a worker is seen as he stands in the new Acropolis Museum currently under construction next to the ancient hill. The first stage of construction is expected to be completed in January, allowing for the museum to be partly opened to the public. It is expected to be fully operational in early 2009. A major operation to transport some 330 statues and artifacts from the current museum atop the Acropolis will begin on October 14.
