I went to the museum yesterday on my last day in Nafplio and I have to say ......wish I'd gone sooner. Yes it's small, two large rooms, but the layout and overall displays are really very good...and I work within yards of the Brithsh Museum in my normal 9 to 5 so I have a good bench mark there.

This is a really cool museum in Nafplio and a must see if interested in the Akaian's or just Greeks themselves. Has really nice artifacts which really interest you. The only problem is there are 1 or 2 incorrect descriptions about the exhibits. Must see in Nafplio but read up on the stuff a bit first.

Built in 1713 as a warehouse for the venetian navy. It became a military caserne. During the German occupation it housed the German interrogation office and today it serves as an archaeological museum holding a rich collection of finds from prehistoric until roman times.

Great collections! I was surprised at the artifacts that they had on display. If you are in the area, this museum is a must see.

Collection is modest but reasonably displayed on the 2nd & 3rd floor. They have a single major piece of bronze armor and they close at 3:00 so be there early. Toilets are on the floor next to the square and free. An hour is sufficient if you read some of the details.

Located on Syntagma square in a beautiful old Venetian building the museum has two floors displaying an outstanding collection of artefacts from local sites on the Peloponnese peninsular. The displays are organised in reverse chronological order starting on the 1st floor with neolithic finds (from around 7000BC) and finishing in the late iron age (around 100AD) on the 2nd floor....

Very interesting artefacts, well laid out and well labelled in English. Just the right size to take it all in. It was worth watching the video about the area and the archeological finds.

This museum has a splendid collection of holdings from the various archeological sites that we've visited in the Peloponnese. It's a nice size in that it doesn't overwhelm the visitor. We arrived about 45 minutes before closing time, and when we hadn't yet gotten to the second of the two large halls before closing time, the staffers told us to... More

The museum was very well laid out, with lots of interesting information. It was interesting to see photos of the archaeologists at work in the 1950's, and fascinating to see artefacts that had been found in the places we had just visited (Mycenae, Tyrins, Ancient Asini).

There is an ancient suit of armour, all in iron and looking incredibly heavy. This dates from about 1100 BC, I think. There are also some good pieces of Greek pottery, both geometric and later. I also was most impressed by the jewellery and ivory combs from 600 BC.
