I visited these yesterday with my wife and 3 children, 10yrs, 9yrs and 2yrs, and I must admit this place has made a lasting impression on me. So well looked after by the tour guide Joanna, who was unbelievable.

Definitely the highlight of Olympia’s Archaeological Museum and almost a reason in its own right to visit Olympia. The statue is set in its own section of the museum, with space enough around to stand and admire. Take your time to appreciate what an extraordinary work of art it is.

The museum is small but full of beautiful pieces and of course this masterpiece alone is worth the trip. The site, when we visited, was full of trees covered in pink flowers and the ground covered in multicolored flowers.

It worth doing this visit with a tour guide as they explain the really interesting points in detail and share stories that you wouldn't otherwise hear. The model of Ancient Olympia is amazing and the statues are all in incredible condition. worth going!

Do not miss this museum. It is a short walk from an ancient site close by and close to fairly priced cafes and souvenir shops. In this museum, everything is well preserved. There is marble upon marble sculptures of Ancient Greek mythology and ancient artefacts which were found around olympus! Although it's a small museum, it's a great one!

We visited this as part of our tour of Ancient Olympus and were not disappointed. The statues are preserved and arranged in extraordinary attention to detail. The lighting design is simply awesome and allows you to take excellent photos of the artefacts (provided you respect the simple rules of no flash photography and no selfies/ shots with people in etc....

The works of Praxiteles influenced Greek and Roman sculptors through the ages and it is easy to see why when examining the sculpture of Hermes. Take your time examining every bit of this beautiful piece. It is worth the time you devote.

My husband and I visited the city of Olympia on a guided tour from our cruise ship and on the tour we visited the statue of Hermes. This truly is a piece of real artwork and is amazing at how perfectly preserved this masterpiece is. Make sure to walk around the entire piece and see the skills of those that... More
