    [02] Event for Acropolis Museum

    WASHINGTON (ANA-MPA) -- An event entitled "The Secrets of Parthenon" was held here to celebrate the opening of the New Acropolis Museum this month.

    The event was co-organised by the organisation "American Friends of the New Acropolis Museum" as well as the National Museum of American History following an initiative of the Greek embassy in Washington.

    The celebration was held at the D.C. museum and aims to promote the museum and its treasures, including the repatriation of the Parthenon Marbles from the British Museum.

    Former US presidential candidate and Mass. governor Michael Dukakis and former Clinton adviser George Stephanopoulos are the honorary presidents of the organisation.
