Pretty standard museum after seeing a few around Greece but you walk into the room with Hermes and it is just magic!

The statues found from ancient Olympia, quite impressive but in a way a bit disturbing as they are missing a lot of parts. The complete ones are stunning! You might want to go with a guide to get some stories and explanations.

People tend to gather around most of the statues and it is hard to see when there are many tourists. The morning times seem to be best since as soon as noon time came along, lots of tour groups showed up.

The statue reconstruction is amazing and the artifacts among the best in any museum. If you go to the Olympic site don't pass on the museum it is impressive

Very interesting part of the trip to Olympia. Stop in while looking at the other parts of what makes up the historic grounds.

One of the many treasures that the museum had to offer. It is one of the highlights of the collection for sure. Also, my favorite Greek god.

This museum of Olympia has wonderful masterpieces of Olympia and ancient Greek art. It is beautiful-you just can't get enough of the beauty of the art. It is phenomenal to see things dating back in the 300's B.C. Hard to imagine! Do not miss when going to Olympia!

First off, the statue is stunning and rivals anything from the museums of Italy or France. It's life like and doesn't even compare to similar sculptures from such an early time period. The thing that confuses me about this TA listing is that this sculpture isn't a separate attraction. It's in a room in the archeological museum in Olympia. It... More

This is the museum of the ancient archeological site in old Olympia Just a short skip off the main roadway to either Athens or the other way down to Kalamata The statue is amazingly in great shape considering its age As one previous reviewer put it, the Hermes statue is up there with the MichaelAngelo art!!!!
