We went there as it was part of a tour. It was interesting as the tour guide described all the most important pieces in there. If I went alone it would be just looking at things and not knowing what I am looking at. Unless you are into history and you know what you are looking at its very interesting.... More

This lovely museum is just a subway ride away from Athens tourist central, yet it's seldom crowded and well worth the trip (about a 20-minute walk from the end of Metro Line 1, the green line). It's a totally different experience from its huge counterpart in Athens--it's calming and peaceful, with space to examine individual items closely for as long... More

These are beautifully displayed ancient treasures, mostly stone sculptures and heroic sized bronzes. Piraeus is quite small but highly congested with traffic. Still, it takes just a few minutes from any Pireaus hotel or the boat docks to get to the museum. Although it should be popular, it was not busy at all so there was plenty of time and... More

Take a little while in this museum. We have not been to the big Archaeological museum yet so do not have comparison, but it was very accessible, can get very close and can see great detail. There are pieces that still have the little holes and shells, where the sea animals have eaten their way into the marble statues, great... More

I have been going to Greece annually for the last 30 years and never heard anything about this exquisite and little known treasur of a museum. It is for me one of the best in Athens. You will be astonished what you see! William N.

I ended up here sort of by accident and I nearly never went because I didn't enjoy the Archaeological Museum in Athens. However, this is so much better - and cheaper. It has some amazing funerary steles and the bronze statues are amazing. I especially loved the tragic mask.

This beautiful museum is near the marina zeas near the seaside which is a great walk towards caffes and restaurants. The museum itself can be approached easily and most of the sightseeing a can be seen walking by. It's never crowded and it's not considered very popular , each year in the summer though , last Sunday of August specifically... More
