Apparently the artifacts displayed here were found in various areas of Delphi. Take note the collection covers different periods. The classical takes the cake with more exhibits than the rest. We did not have enough time to view the exhibits closely since our tour guide gave us only an hour.

Museum was worth a visit with lots of artifacts and things connected with Delphi ruins. Some real treasures eg the charioteer and the twins. Large rooms so nice to sit and reflect. Not a large museum but select.

We toured the site and then did the museum. Was nice to see the artifacts that have been recovered there. Very nicely laid out, spacious and enjoyable.

To get the best from your visit to the ruins a visit here is important. It helps make sense of the growth, evolution and demise of the whole story. Tickets for both museum and archaeological can be purchased, making a small saving, but do not have to be used on the same day. Attendants are very protective of the exhibits... More

This is a lovely museum, interesting, immaculate and air-conditioned. Visit it before the ruins in the hotter part of the day. It took about an hour to walk through, although I didn't linger too much. The ruins afterwards took about 1.5 hours, and I was glad I did the museum first as I don't think I would have had the...

I am not a museum kind of person but this museum flows beautifully with just enough exhibits. The photos of the original excavations acting as a backdrop to the statues in the exhibition was outstanding.

Impressive collection of the treasures, sculptures, and artifacts from the site. Well organized and interesting. It's the other part of the story. Worth taking a walk through.

Some very well preserved pieces, together with famous bronze sculpture. Display is nice, and this will definitely will not be the best museum you visit, it gives you a good idea of the Delphi site. 3 Euro to visit, or the bundle ticket for 9 Euro together with ruins. Definetely visit when in Delphi.
