I was surprised to read a review from someone who said they spent nearly the entire day in the museum. Wow--I have a hard time imagining that, because although I am really interested in ancient history, this isn't THAT big of a museum: what, maybe a dozen rooms? That said, this is a very good museum, very thoughtfully laid out... More

My husband and I spent nearly an entire day touring the museum. What a phenomenal collection. It is very extensive and well marked with descriptions and information and each piece. Please make sure you have a lot of time because there is a lot to see.

Some of the collection in here are nearly all in tact. Amazing craftsmanship. The twins were my highlight. Is air conditioned so can cool off before of after the ruins!

This is one of the best museums in Greece. It gives a great introduction to the culture. It is well laid out with good traffic patterns that help relieve the heavy crowds. Don't miss it.

Incredible museum. Well thought out and most comfortable. Brings everything into focus before you walk into the ancient city ruins. Hard to realize that this complex was built over and the town moved before the excavations. One has to wonder how many other treasures were just hauled away with the excavation process.

A newer museum and well lauded out. Great artifacts that go back 4000 years. The highlight a bronze sculpture over 3000 years ago. We had a guide who help point us to the highlights of the collection. We spent between 45 minutes to 1 hour sheltered from the sun and heat. Unlike the Acropolis the treasures are still at the...

The museum has some very important and some beautiful items. It just so happened that I had planned to go back to the Temple of Apollo the second day , but it rained. So fortunately I went to the museum.

The best artifacts from the ancient ruins are all located here. We arrived during the last hour it was open, and there were very few people around. Although you are allowed to take photos (without flash) of the artifacts, the attendants DO NOT allow visitors to take pictures of the artifacts WITH people in the photos. This was disappointing, to... More
