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!

Well set out and informative museum with archaeological remains from the Argolid from Neolithic times to the Mycenean period. The showpiece is the Dendra cuirass and there is a good and informative DVD (English subtitles and other languages) about its discovery and function.

With artifacts dating from 9000 BCE to the classical era, the museum is a miniature of the best museums in Greece. Check out the full set of Trojan War-era armor! And the skeleton of a Mycenaen newborn, preserved in its tiny grave.

This museum was reopened only a few years ago following the renovation of a Venetian building. On two floors, the rooms are bright and uncluttered and the exhibits beautifully displayed and lighted. Even better, descriptions on every item are in both Greek and English making it easy to know more about what you are looking at. There are interesting finds... More

An extremely modern and well laid out museum in a beautiful old Venetian building. Please do go and visit as it has some fabulous displays relating to local archaeological finds, and it should be supported. Very good value at Euro3 (I think...)

Recently renovated the Archaeological museum offers a vast variety of items that will show you the history of the greater area of this part of Peloponese. The great experience starts when entering this great building that hosts one of the best exhibitions in Greece. The size of the museum is what it takes to make a tourist happy. Not as... More
