Not very impressed, even if for the first time no one was trying to sell us anything. Cafeteria employees were astonished to have customers.

I Enjoyed this visit very much. The 3D film they show you is helpful and also palatable for the whole family to get the gist of the battle and strategy involved. Visiting the site itself is also very interesting, in spite of the fact that...More

This is very out of the way and I would never make the trip just for this place. Fortunately it was on the way to Meteora and a convenient stopping point to stretch. This isn't much of a museum since there are no artifacts that...More

The museum is just off the main roadway through the region. If you are a history buff and have interest in the 300 Spartans legend, then you must stop in. To be at the site of the fabled battlefield was somewhat heart pulling to know...More

Visiting the museum is an good orientation to the historic events at Thermopylae and provides a physical context to the battle that the current topography cannot. The presentation is fairly basic, but nicely done. That said, Thermopylae and the museum are not places to go...More

This museum is all about the real story behind the film 300. It is air conditioned and has a short video. The location is in the middle of nowhere so don't come here especially, but we stopped here as it is half way to meteora...More

The museum was very small (because it was established the Municipality of Lamia and not the Greek government) but it is more of a work in progress. You see a short digital 3D video and then you get to see a little more detail of...More

There is a 3D video which tells you about the war and the importance of the site, which lasts about 10 minutes. This is followed by a room with interactive tables, unfortunately due to the angle of the tables they are very difficult to read....More

If you need just a brief history on the war, good to view a 10 min 3D video clip. Watched it in English and explanation was very clear. You can proceed to the interactive tables on the other room to check out more information. However...More

Must see this great historical museum. We visited it July 2014 as a part of Albanian and Greek tour ( Sarajevo, Podgorica, Tirana, Saranda, Patras, Olympia, Sparta, Mycenae, Athens, Thermopylae and Thessaloniki). Two weeks by car came back to Sarajevo through Macedonia and Serbia.
