Hard to find and looks closed even when open. Very incoherent but some nice items on display. I enjoyed the outside part with artillery pieces the most. Typically no information whatsoever. I guess only for military enthusiasts. The nearby marina is nice for a stroll, verified by my female counterpart.

The exhibition is divided into two parts: one deals with the fortification of the harbour by Themistocles in the 5th century BC and the importance of triremes and shipsheds.... More

This is an interesting small museum. It is hard to find if you're using a map, as it is below road level and only accessible by going down to the Zea Marina harbour level. But once in there it is an interesting place to visit. The Greek success at the Battle of Salamis is highlighted and its importance in stopping... More

A bit out of the way but the boys liked it, walking around the ship and seeing the guns, then going inside and passing from section to section, they were so curious and the staff was friendly and helpful!

Piraeus being the biggest harbour of the Mediterranean - what more natural to do than visit the Nautical Museum? We found it after a little bit of struggle. We were the only visitor this morning and indeed found a display of a lot different ships - older and less old. But it was very much up to what you could... More
