Bill - how fantastic to see this museum promoted like this and your two very insightful comments about what they did to make it an extra special experience - what a pity the British museum insist on not letting them have the rest of the parthenon marbles back to have in this museum so that they can be viewed in the context of that fine building up on the hill next to the museum.
Greece is facing difficult times but this is an apt reminder of the great heritage that it has and what it contributed to the world in terms of culture, art and democracy.
Thanks very much indeed.

Marie- Louise Thanks for your input. As the museum video points out Lord Elgin took advantage of turbulent times in Greece to steal the marbles. They should be returned as stolen property. It was simply an major art theft. I am sure if some one had the crown jewels or other British relics the UK would send an army to get them back. Bill

Unfortunately throughout history powerful nations (and individuals born from them) have taken advantage of others at moments of great weakness - and then claimed to have done them a favour!
I don't speak for the British but as a half Greek I know which direction my cultural troops would be headed :-) Thanks
