  • [01] PM briefed on New Acropolis Museum opening

    Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis on Monday had a meeting with Culture Minister Antonis Samaras and the head of the organisation for construction of the New Acropolis Museum, Prof. Dimitris Pandermalis, who briefed him on the progress of preparations for the official opening of the New Acropolis Museum on Saturday.

    "We have carried out all the preparations required and we briefed the prime minister and I am sure that everything will go well on Saturday," Samaras told reporters as he emerged from the premier's offices in Maximos Mansion.

    Samaras stressed that the New Acropolis Museum will be a unique cultural centre for the entire world and pointed to the very positive reports already appearing in international media focusing on Greece, the Athens Acropolis and the masterpieces housed in the Museum.

    Pandermalis said that the Museum opening would be both glamorous but also close to ordinary people, since the general public would be allowed access for the three days leading up to the formal inauguration ceremony for the officials and VIPs.
