A small museum but excellent display of local treasures. A great stop while wondering in the old town. the staff was extremely helpful and they even did some babysitting! It is also very cheap but it closes too early.

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
