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

This beautifully curated museum was like a Goldilocks experience for me--not too big, not too small, just the right size. The exhibits were carefully placed in context and an era came alive. The importance of the Dendra Armour was a revelation. It greatly enhanced my trip to Mycenae and I wish that I could have returned to the museum after... More

It certainly was worth waiting for the revamp. Loved the way the pieces have been shown, plenty of room to move around and look at the displays. Information on the pieces were well presented in Greek and English. The building itself is Venetian and is a delight to look at but what is inside is the very best of Mycenaean... More

Mycenaean suit of armor was stunning as were the votives from Tiryns, Epidauros, Mycenae, etc. Well worth the time to see before and/or after the nearby ruins.
