The culture minister slammed the British Museum's stance regarding the marbles as "outdated and colonialist".
The exhibition, hosted by the museum director Prof. Nikolaos Stampolidis, is an up-close and panoramic encounter with the prehistoric Aegean world.
The Culture Ministry announced the closure of cultural sites until at least March 30 in order to protect staff, the public and the sites themselves.
Britain's choice to distance itself from Europe will help create the conditions for the marbles' return, according to the Greek culture minister.
The revamp is hoped to bring new life to the central part of Athens where the museum is located.
Geoffrey Robertson sent a copy of his book to Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, with a note expressing his hope for the Parthenon Marbles to be returned.
On the occasion of World Tourism Day, the Acropolis Museum is offering free entrance today starting at 17.00.
