Saw this featured in Today paper today.

I would like to see the exhibition for $8. But anyone know if photography is allowed inside. And if yes, dunno if they allow you to set up a big a** tripod and shoot the exhibits to make the $8 worth it. :bigeyes::bsmilie:

From what I remember in many museums in Europe, they allow photo, but no flash, becos the UV from the flash would damage the paintings.

Sounds interesting... Might wan to give them a call to check first. I last went to museum and the sign of no camera outside most exhibits sort of turn me off... Nevertheless worth a try to ask ($8 leh)

While "worth" is a subjective thing, I would suggest that one not judge it by the no of pictures one is allowed to take.

Seeing rare exhibits for $8 is already far far cheaper than the entry fee of any museum in the West.

Just went to the exhibition yesterday. It was really well worth the $8 that I paid. In fact I felt that what was offered is worth more than my $8.

Photography is strictly not allowed. As it was a weekday, there were not many people but there was a security personnel making his rounds every now and then to make sure that everything is in order and there are CCTVs around, so there will not be a chance to snap any pictures.

Go take a look at the 100 over exhibits they have, they are really :thumbsup:

Thanks Galdor for the report. As I have not been to the museum since it reopened after the extensive renovation, I will try to go after Christmas. Never mind if No Photo.

Cool bro. Enjoy the trip there. I've checked with the authorities there. Photography is allowed on the in-house exhibits as in exhibits owned by the Museum, but for guest exhibits (exhibits on loan or invited by the Museum) we cannot shoot.

Anyway, I liked the dome-shaped roof of the museum, look up when you enter the main entrance. It's very nice and photos are allowed on that. ;)

Well, I make a trip there on Saturday. I have to say it's a very rare sight to see so many ancient artifacts. It really showed how much Greeks has influenced our modern world, their art, culture, sports and etc. Well worth the $8 spent!

Went yesterday... was open house at the museum. Think the exhibitions were pretty okay.. nothing spectacular about them. Preferred walking around the "Food" gallery upstairs though (before dinner la... )

Hey all, i went today, and asked the museum personnel in the exhibition and was told: "Photography is allowed, but no flash and no tripod please."

So i had a great time shooting the statues.. will post some pics when i'm free.. :)

Yah, I went to the exhibition today and the staff told me "photography is allowed, but no flash" before I even ask.

And note that, if photography is not allowed, an icon of a camera with close flash is displayed, but if just no flash is allowed, an icon of a camera with popped up flash is displayed.

The ticket is $4 for students and the pieces are fantastic. You should visit the exhibition, it worths the time spending there.

I took some great photos (they are great to me :D). You can take a look at some on my flickr to have an idea what is exhibited inside
