The Museum is modern and well laid out with good facilities. The Collections are beautiful: sculptures, explanations, historic information are all well done. The gold collection is breathtaking: glorious pieces from all over Greece; from elaborate headdresses, to tiny rings, bracelets, coins, and many things in between. It is comprehensive enough to give a real insight into the history of... More

Very rude customer service. Could not even enter the museum because my university identification card had expired and I didn't have time to renew it before my trip. After how rude the ticket lady was, my classmate and I were not going to pay 8 euro to enter this establishment.

Yes it was my first visit to such a kind of museum (a bit embarrassing to state here). It was of great interest and enjoyable.

It is very big and very well presented. You need at least 2 hours. Also don't forget to take combine ticket with Byzantine Museum for save money and 1st Sunday of each month is free both of them :)

Wonderful collection. You can buy a combined ticket for the Byzantine museum for 8 euros. We unfortunately couldn't visit the Byzantine museum even though we paid. they are right next to each other.
