European Heritage Days: Free entrance in Greece’s state-run museums, archaeological sites

Entrance to state-run archeological sites, museums and monuments will be free of charge over the weekend to mark the European Heritage Days. The annual pan-European event will also be celebrated in Greece on September 24-26, the Culture Ministry announced on Thursday.

This year’s overarching theme of festivities across the European continent is “Heritage: All inclusive.”

In Greece, two separate themes have been announced: “Train Journey,” within the framework of the 2021 European Railway Year, and a special look into the life and works of Ioannis Kapodistrias, Greece’s first governor after independence from the Ottomans, in the context of the bicentennial of the 1821 Greek Revolution.
