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.

The Delphi museum is well located - just adjacent to the sanctuary.The museum is a must visit after exploring the sanctuary. The artifacts unearthed at the site are beautifully displayed. Some of the highlights of the museum is the charioteer of Delphi, The sphinx perched atop an Ionic column & the bronze cauldron on a tripod.

We visited this museum prior to walking the archeological site. It was fantastic. I loved the history and explanations along side many of the artifacts. I appreciated that you could take pictures (without flash). Lovely museum!

I studied Art history and many of the objects, statues and displays were what I remembered from College studies.

The amount of artifacts that this site has produced is amazing. There is so much to see. The museum is easy to get around and has a good flow through it. I enjoyed the visit to it. There was just enough to see without being too much.

This is a nice museum. There are a lot of artifacts inside and they allow pics. It is wheelchair accessible, but also requires some walking. The only thing that annoyed me was the millions of stray cats outside the place.
