Before the Dorians arrived there were Myceneans and they ruled a large part of the known world leaving monumental artefacts and traces of a well developed civilisation. Coupled with Mycenae, the story unfolds with fascinating style

nice museum in an Venetian palace, with findings from Mycaene, Thyrins and other locations - small, but informative.

Didn't expect much when going into the museum because we had been to Athens before Nafplion and that museum took our breath away, but Nafplion's Museum was well worth the time as well. Obviously it is smaller, but there are great exhibits showing artifacts dating back to the Neolithic period up through Roman times.

We went twice, before and after we looked at the local archeology; beautifully set out and good, informative displays.

The exhibits were excellent. The best was the suit of armor that was so well preserved. We made a specific early morning stop before having to leave to fly out of Athens and had very little time, but it was well worth the effort!

Must see - oldest suit of armor in all of Europe...fascinating. Well worth the admission price. Also has some interesting pig face terra-cotta ceremonial masks.

The Museum is a three storey Venetian building in Constitution Square. The 1st and 2nd floors host displays found in the area covering thousands of years. On can see many items from every day life teracota or bronze, weapons, vases and a unique ancient armour. A neat and very well organized place showing the love and care of the people... More

Do not miss this when you visit Nafplion. The ticket was only 2 Euros but it is worth much more, considering what you will be seeing. All the Minoan history can be see with many other important artifacts!
