Worth your while if you are into ancient history.

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.

After visiting the sites of Mycenae and Tiryns, we decided to take a look at the finds at the Archeological Museum of Nafplio. 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

Although the museum is quite small there is still a plethora of things to look at and the accompanying information is very interesting. The staff were also willing to provide more information on certain exhibits as we wandered around the museum. I would highly recommend visiting this place if you have a spare hour whilst in Nafplio.

The museums collection is drawn from sites across the eastern Peloponnese, arranged from 7500 BC, through the Mycenean period to approximately 1-2 AD. It really helps in understanding the lives of peoples who lived in the area, and adds to what can be learned by visiting the archeological remains. We especially liked the armour plating worn by Mycenean warriors, and... More

This museum located right in the center of town is worth the trip. Note that this museum is housed in an original Venetian Building built in the 1700's. The exhibits are located on two floors and so you will have to climb quite a few steps. There is great lighting and exhibit cases for the displays. I was impressed with... More
