We walked around in Piraeus and suddenly we stood in front of this museum. We spent about an hour there and admired the beautiful statues that have been hidden for so long.

This is a charming little museum, full of surprises. Did you know that Piraeus supplied mass-produced architectural artwork to the Roman Empire? Choose from their examples at the Museum! Take some time to talk to the staff, they are shy but they open up if you ask - they may even fetch the elevator for you.

This museum is small compared to its big brother in Athens but the collection is excellent and very well presented. The bronzes are stunning and the gravestones are lovely; reminded us of Keramikos. A great way to spend a couple of hours.

The whole place was built to replicate the Parthenon and all the relics have been placed in the area where they would have been on the original building. The only thing that I didn't like was that you couldn't take photos. Being honest we didn't but others did.

Re-visited this museum whilst in Piraeus for the day. Still blown away by the statues, including that of Athena, found in an old dock warehouse. This small museum is a joy to wonder around and there is a good collection if Minoan miniature pieces. Unfortunately the outside area was closed due to austerity measures and thus the lack of staff... More

Thanks to some excellent, previous reviews we decided to visit this museum rather than fighting our way to Athens during our cruise stop. Are we ever happy we did, because this is an excellent little museum. We did it all at a leisurely pace in one hour. The bronze statues of Apollo, Artemis, and especially Athena are absolutely fantastic! It... More

This much neglected museum deserves more visitors. It houses four fabulous bronze statues of the fourth century BC, a spectacular marble mausoleum of the same period, many beautiful grave reliefs, a colossal marble eagle that served as a grave marker, a price list of meat served in the harbor restaurants in the first century BC, a marble eye that once...
