Musuem / Historical site combo passes

I'll be in Athens for 2.5 days mid September and trying to determine which combo ticket is the best to purchase. This is our first time to Greece. We'll have already done stops in the Greek Isles and the Peloponnese and this will be at the end of our trip. Our travel style is to visit all the key sites as we really enjoy understanding history. Obviously we want to go up the Acropolis and see the Parthenon. We also want to visit the Acropolis Museum and the National Archaeological Museum. We're staying right in Syntagma Square so we should be good logistically.

Any recomendations from the group on:
- best combo ticket to buy
- what site to buy it from

I found that it seems a lot of 3rd parties try to get you to but combo tickets thru them (with a large markup no doubt) so it's a bit confusing. I did find this site:

it sounds to me that this is a place to by a combo ticket directlt but it's a bit of a confusing site. If anyone has had success in getting combo tickets for Athens sites can you let me know how you went about it?

You have found the right website. This is the official site. Don't go buy tickets anywhere else. You can take the combined ticket.

You will be asked for a time slot, this one corresponds to the time of visit of the Acropolis. You will receive your tickets by email with a QR code that will be scanned at the entrance to the sites.

The official website for the Acropolis Museum is:

It is not the same as for the Acropolis ( because the museum is privately managed.

No need to take tickets with other websites that mention commercial arguments such as "Skip the line". You will have it automatically by buying the tickets on the official sites while paying less.
