This museum is simply phenomenal and a "must see!" The Charioteer is one of the most moving sculptures you will ever have an opportunity to see. When you gaze into his eyes and realize that he is looking back at you from 2,000 years ago, the effect is almost overwhelming. And the Charioteer is only one of hundreds of magnificent... More

Organized overall, polite staff. Everything presented as expected. Allowed to take pics of everything inside. No posing allowed. Bad shop outside of museum. Avoid.

Exhibition is excellent, well organized, with English translate by every statue, but little bit obsolete without mentioned headphones. Also it is forbidden to make photo of the statues with someone (tourist) nearby. Recomend first to visit Museum, and later ruins and temples because ruins have no explanation on the site.

We visited the museum with a guide, which I highly recommend. The place is well done, and having a guide especially brought it to life. We went before going to the ruins, which is how I would definitely recommend doing it. It was so helpful to be able to see how it was first and then to visit the ruins.... More

Delphi has so much history and so few stones left standing that visiting the museum before (and again after if you have time) the site is a plus and helps you imagine the splendor once on site. It is well explained in Greek, English and French, well designed and a necessary complement. Don't miss the painting by Tournaire at the... More

The museum is in a modern build. Visit it helps to understand a lot of what Delphi was. A good colection of ancient pieces from the site of Delphi.

Visit the ruins and then come here to see the artifacts. Amazing stuff well presented, well worth a couple of hours. A must see among all the Greek museums.

A well laid out museum with some lovely statues displayed including in the last room the famous bronze statue of the Charioteer. Loved the winged sphinx and a beautifully reconstructed plate. Do recommend you visit this museum when visiting the ancient site of Delphi.
