#76 / The Acropolis Museum
The Acropolis Museum, in Athens, is surely one of the most wonderful museums in the world. Beneath the Acropolis, which is always within sight, and built above the ancient residential quarters of Athens, which can be seen through glass floors, the museum reminds us not only of the "glory that was Greece," but of the glorious adventure that is at the heart of our existence. Our brief lives are dedicated, in the end, to the creation of the human realities we most immediately inhabit.
