Since the formation of this committee in 1981, our members have made frequent visits to both the British Museum and over the past 10 years since it’s inception, the Acropolis Museum. It goes without saying that the Acropolis Museum is peerless, an outstanding example of world’s best practice in 21st Century Museology.
Fair and morally imperative
Opening the recent international conference, The reunification of the Parthenon Sculptures Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos affirmed that the, “reunification of the Parthenon Sculptures is institutionally fair and morally imperative.”
Co-organised by the Presidency of the Republic, the Ministry of Culture and Sport, the International Association for the Reunification of the Parthenon Sculptures and the Acropolis Museum, the event was held in the Museums amphitheatre
The Parthenon’s colourful frieze
One of the highlights of the visit, apart from the remarkable presence that all of the sculpture have at the foot of the Parthenon, were the new audiovisual displays. We wasted no time in capturing a few moments of the display on an iPhone. Apologies for the poor quality images.
