Nothing prepared me for seeing the reconstructed Sphinx. Absolutely stunning. The museum is really well presented with artefacts displayed imaginatively to enhance the visitor experience. A must visit before going to the actual ruins. I was very disappointed the museum shop was closed as I really wanted some postcards and notebooks.

This is a great museum and part of the Delphi experience. There is a lot to see and learn. We were lucky to have very few people there so we could stroll trough and see it all within about 45 mins. Very interesting pieces of history to view.

Rarely have I visited such a well structured site, who said the Greeks aren't organised? You have the ruins and extracted artefacts all in one place that really gives you the opportunity to really learn some history and feel connected to the artefacts, not just view them blankly as you would do in a London museum. It would be wonderful... More

This small and focused museum adds the perfect completion to your visit to Delphi. The highlight of course is the bronze charioteer. Do not miss it. As is the case with all Greek archeological sites and museums bring your own learning resources and details are skimpy.

My wife and I liked everything, great museum, great views. Weather in March could be tricky though, it rained heavily for half day.

Yes, they have free wifi in the museum...but that's not all! They have wonderful pieces from across Greece, and some great statues. A "must-to-be-put-on-visit-list"

History is everywhere in this large and well appointed museum. The original artifacts of ancient Delphi are laid out for you to see and experience. My son and I were with a tour group and the great guide we had offered insights into all we saw. We saw the Sphinx of Naxos, the Twin Kouros, sculptures from the Roman period... More

Unlike the Akropolis and its museum in Athens, the historical site of Delphi is well maintained. When visiting the the most famous ancient Greek oracle one can really feel connected to the past. The site itself is impressive and interesting but the museum is a prearl. we spent there more that two hours and enjoyed every minute. Most interesting to... More

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
