Athens, Greece -- No matter your age, it's a thrill to visit the Parthenon -- one of the world's most famous landmarks. Yet Athens has much more to offer than simply traveling from one magnificent ruin of the city’s classical past to another. For instance, there are the kid-friendly events at the New Acropolis Museum whereas individual family backpacks are provided to families upon arrival. The backpacks provide games and fun gadgets for children to use while visiting the museum, such as the challenge of finding 12 representations of the goddess Athena located throughout the museum. The quest for Athena can really bring the museum’s antiquities alive for the younger visitors.
Duplicates of the family backpacks are available in the gift shop as souvenirs of the museum. (Retail value: $85) Plus, the outside cafe on the 2nd floor of the building offers free WiFi and an amazing overhead view of the Acropolis that might leave one thinking he or she was looking down on it from Olympian heights.
