The Piraeus Archaeological Museum operates in a modern building. It consists of a two-store showroom with warehouse and laboratories located in the basement. There is a building connection to the oldest museum (built in 1935 and declared as under preservation)

Even though I am not really into Archaeological museums, I thought whilst I was in Piraeus it would be a good idea to pay this museum a visit.

An unexpected and outstanding collection of archeological discoveries. You can walk to the harbor. There was no crowd and my wife and I could take our time to admire the artifacts. The yard outside the museum would require some de-weeding, but, ...still give a great sense of the past.

The collection mostly consists of funeral monuments from the Piraeus Road of Tombs and object found in the harbour. The bronze statues are fantastic, especially the Piraeus Apollo, while the tomb monuments give you the understanding of particular Greek perception of the death and afterlife.The ruins of the Zeas Theatre and an open-air exhibition are accessible from the museum courtyard.

Long queue for entry tickets....endless... waiting. After you have been through the serpentine queue, the museum is the place to visit after the city tour

The museum has an unbelievable assortment of works,but the Mycenaean and Archaic works are amazing and there is lots to see. Plan on spending at least 3 hours here if you want to take it all in.
