This museum was OK for artifacts, although the best have already taken off to Archaeological Museum in Athens. However, they had guards posted in every room for the express reason of preventing anyone from taking any kind of picture that looked like a POSE. So if you like to take selfies or any kind of picture of another person, don't... More

Arriving at 10am, we were greeted with massive coachloads of people cramming into what is a small museum. Noisy guides, pushy visitors and hardly room to breathe made the experience unbearable. The ruins next door were even more crowded: and this in early May before the holiday season.

Fascinatingly displayed, particularly liked the bronze charioteer with suspended remnants up against full sized drawing, very creative. Impressive. 2wanderers.con

Having walked the ruins of Delphi, we made for the cool of the Museum. Though small, it is packed with some amazing pieces that support the story of the grandeur of Delphi. The Charioteer is impressive but my favourites were the 2 ladies (heads) with hammered gold jewellery and the stunning marble carving of the youth, Antinoos. Allow yourself time... More

Delphi is high on a mountainous rock. The museum houses all that remained in Delphi after it was destroyed by the Persians. It was a hub back in history and had so much but most was robbed. You can still tell how rich this city was. There was the Temple of Apollo with the detailed stories on its pediments. This... More

You will see things that look like they could have been created yesterday, they are so perfect, yet they are from around 500BC. The only thing that bothered us were the tour guides that would gather their people around a specific item and then not let others in to see that item. We thought that those people were rude and...

A museum with very interesting displays. I was disappointed when I tried to take a photo of my husband near the Sphinx. They told me that I could only take a photo of the Sphinx, but not with my husband near there. First time I come accross such a regulation. You are eighter allowed or not allowed to take photos.

We're a retired American couple following Rick Steves itinerary for Greece for 3 weeks. We expected to take the bus here but our Airbnb hostess befriended us and drove us here. We're visiting her cousin in Volos today on a Sunday and then going to Meteora. April 19th is Greek Memorial Day. Now that we understand how the Greek resistance... More

You can see this museum in an hour - it's quite small, but they have some interesting objects and it's worth a visit!
