This museum is on the first and second floor of a stone built Venetian building in Syntagma Square. It's permanent exhibition is historically divided into several themes. The museum's most exquisite piece of archaeological finds is the Bronze Suit Armor of Dendra region which dates back to the 15th century B.C. It alone is worth the visit.

In a very old and nice building nearby ministry of culture veryinformative museum. Starting from 10. Century (bc) . they give us information about life of human beeing and what they use to live etc. Though 2 floor only, it is a must to visit that museum.

Since it reopened after renovation, this museum is simply spectacular (on a small scale, of course). The displays are well labeled and very informative. Be sure to watch the videos. They aren't too long, and they give a complete picture of the history and archeology of the region.

A small museum but worth a visit. It takes about 40 mins to view the 2 rooms on 2 floors. Has some nice pottery and a suit of very old armour.

We stopped at the museum for what we thought would be a quick visit and were so intrigued that we stayed well over an hour. The museum is arranged chronologically and contains artifacts found in this area of Greece that go back to 28000 BC. A prime artifact in the museum is a suit of bronze body armor that dates... More

Two floors with some duplication. The armour and helmets are worth the visit alone. Some good grave items, blades, spear points, jewellery, figurines fill out the rest. Venetian building on lovely square.

If you are planning on visiting some of the nearby ancient sites, then you will find those museums have much more to see, but still worth visiting this one if you are staying for a while.

Nauplio is a beautiful city to visit, no,matter which season one chooses. We first went to Nauplio almost ten years ago in May. We returned this past spring to participate in the half marathon . The city and its many attractions did not disappoint us. Even in an extremely busy week end, we felt welcome. The museum is one of... More
