Tons of marble and statuses in the Delphi Museum - we enjoyed it all. Nice food court as well - with a bit of shade and shaved ice (handy in the summer heat). Beautiful art and statues. Though, you're not allowed to have someone 'pose' in the pictures you take of the statues and art ... not sure on the... More

You have to expect big crowds here due to the proximity to Athens. The museum is well laid out and exhibits are well presented. Facilities are available nearby as well as a decent café for a quick lunch. Parking is limited (standard for Greece).

When you have to compete with the Archaeological Museum in Athens to hang onto your own relics, you will never be able to - but the small Delphi museum in a nice, compact collection of some of the key elements of the site and its history. The way they have put together the presentation of some of the relics, like... More

Small but significant museum - all the statues and artefacts are from the Delphi ruins and most are well preserved. There are some significant collections of gold ornaments and other items. Definitely worth visiting - go before you see the ruins to get the historical run down.

The museum is not large for such an important site. The items on display were well presented but in truth we got much more from the archaeological site than the museum. You can cover the museum in 20-30 minutes.

A small but significant museum with the usual collection of Greek statues and urns. Great that one could take pictures of items as a memory of one''s visit. The ompholos is an interesting item on display.

Like most museums in Greece, this was superb. However, much of the labeling was vaguer than required (this is my subject) and a little more discussion of the actual use of the sanctuary might have been nice. Real downer--the gift shop.

The sanctuary is fantastic but it's not until you see the artefacts and treasures uncovered from the site that you begin to understand the magnitude and richness of the site. We went to the museum after our visit and I wished we had of visited the museum first so we could have imagined all of the items in situ!

Well worth the time to explore since you are able to see ,close up things that have been lovingly placed under cover to save them from the ravages of time and weather.
