Walk the site first, then see many of the original and pretty well preserved carvings and statues including the Sphinx, dancers, and pieces of the gold bull (well displayed,), the chariot driver, the Kouros twins, etc. Use a guide book to differentiate between the originals, the rebuilds and the replicas. No maps given at the site or the museum. A... More

We visited this museum in conjunction with the Delphi ruins and our guide had been telling us about the treasure we would see. We were not disappointed. This was a magnificent museum well documented and wonderfully laid out. One of the treasures of Greece, I'd say. It had artefacts ranging from 3500 years ago right up to the Roman period.

If you visit The Site of Delphi, but not to visit the museum as if you were not in Delphi. For me, a memorable statue Courous od Delphoi, Sphinx from Naxos and magnificent Statue of Agias of Pharsala,

The museum includes a collection of items found in the site of Delphi. They range from the magnificent Sphink to the amazingly well preserved statues of Antinoo and the the bronze chariot driver. A special display with gifts made of noble materials show an impressive work of reconstruction. The extensive explanations for the metopes and other elements of the temples... More

The highlight is the Charioteer but there are lots of examples of Greek and Egyptian mixed influenced statues. It's worth a look when you are in Delphi.
