Having been to the Louvre, the British Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of New York, the National Archaeological Museum in Athens, and a ton of other museums around the world, i was almost disappointed with this one. So small, and not too many exhibits. However, in retrospect, I have to be fair. This is a local museum and it should not... More

This museum was so well set up with good descriptions and so much to see that we paid two visits. Helped to make site visits come alive.

The whole place is attractive, the showcases are bright and the texts concise and informative. There is a short movie that summarises the history of the region, but we really enjoyed the photos showing the excavators in work and in feasts after work.

Very extensive collection of artifacts spanning many centuries. The museum had the displays arranged in an ascending chronological order that was very interesting.

A compact local museum which doesn't overwhelm with too many exhibits. Good place to visit before you go to Mycenae. The armour found in one of the chamber tombs is the highlight.

Absolutely loved this Museum, it is located in a stunning building built in the 1700's by the Venetians, in Syntagma Square. My favourite was the jewellery from1500-1450 BCE.

It's located right on Syntagma square in the centre of town, and is closed on Mondays. The entrance ticket is 6€ for adults and a reduced rate of 3€ for EU over 65's and students. There is... More
