You won't find a lot of staff to answer your questions but the displays are very well set up and the descriptions clear and informative.

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.

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.
