Very nice museum to make a image of ancient Olympia. Mainly central hall with fragments of statues is amazing. Take a time to visit this museum (minimum 1 and half hour). During our visit was canteen out of order.

The museum is wonderful, but seems to have lost something with the Greek crisis. There is no cafeteria or place where you can buy water. A single machine with no pure water option can be found locally. The staff were more attentive to their cellphones...More
