A guide is a must to gain the best from this museum as the artefacts it contains can look nothing special without someone to reveal their secrets, For example there was the anthropomorphy of temples previously using columns and now moving onto human statues. Alternatively there is the contrast of the classical style of Greek architecture with its plainer Egyptian... More

H.W. Janson's "History of Art" comes alive here with world-renowned sculptures such as The Charioteer and the Kouros Twins up-close and personal. This is an important accompaniment to visiting the Temple at Delphi and the Thoros temple on down the road.

Beautifully put together museum. One of the most complete collections we have seen yet, great descriptions, yet not too much reading involved.

This place is the best of Delphi for sure. A nice place to get out of the weather and enjoy its best finds!

This museum is more than worth the visit. The personnel is friendly and polyglot. I can especially recommend the treasure room which has some of the most delicate artwork from Asia Minor I have ever seen. And of course the Charioteer statue, a must see. Stunning!

A really nice museum worth seeing if you driving by or you're in the vicinity. We only did the museum because my sister was 9 months old and they told us it was a good hike for the actual ruins. Still very nice and highly recommended.

amazing place - very inspiring. We were very extreemly lucky with beautiful weather for January but this place with the temples of Athena and Apollo made us feel at peace with ourselves and being in the mountains the views that people have had for 2500 years or more are incredable. Very blessed to have been able to get the opportunity... More
