“Archeological Museum of Olimpia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

It is an excelent complement of the ruins, do not loose it.
They do not allow you to take pictures posing, so you can not appear in the picture.

“Well laid out, spacious and cool.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Gave us a good sense of Zeus's temple and the story told in the statues of the friezes. Unhurried visit. BUT don't touch anything.. we didnt but heard others reprimanded for doing so!
Visit here first for a plan/layout of the ruins that you should visit afterwards to better appreciate. god refreshment area with lovely freshly squeezed orange juice. Great loos.

“Great Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

We went to a ton of museums in Greece, and this was a very nice one. Lots of documentation in English. In fact, in all of Greece, we never once had a language problem. They really make history accessible at this museum. If you go here first, you'll have a better understanding of what you'll see at the archaeological site across the street.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Outstanding artifacts. Made all the more special by our guide, Niki Vlachou. She made the artifacts come alive for us by explaining the context of what we seeing.

“Must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Wonderful museum with fantastic staues and sculptures found in nearby Olympia. Majority of items not behind glass cases, took loads of photographs, you can get so close to them and admire the fantastic detail. A must see if you are visiting Olympia. Also has a small cafe and shop.
