A perfect museum of Greek military history
Aug 2019
Being in Kalamata during summer vacation, we visited The Museum of Military History. The Museum is unique as young guides from the Arcaiological and History University nearby start to explane to us the history journay of Greeks ftom the age of 1821 Greek Revolution to nowadays. Museum's exhibits, the history trail, the guide help make our family visit unforgetable. Thanks again all the personnel for that moments we spend during our mornig visit there. Must go.

Not too ancient exhibits
Jun 2019
The military museum in Kalamata was founded in 2005. The three-story building with galleries on each floor is located almost in the heart of the city. The museum's exhibits illustrate the history of Greece from 1821 to the present day. What upset me in principle was that I wanted to see more ancient items in the exhibition. Most of the museum's collection is dedicated to the Second world war involving the Greek army in the Middle East. However, those exhibits that are located on the external platforms - for example, a 105-mm m101a1 gun, a m48a5 tank or a British gun right in front of the entrance - are impressive.  The German 81-mm mortar inside the museum is also good.

Visited this small museum with my son. The displays are in Greek, however, we were given a private tour by an excellent guide - well worth a visit.

Very informative and they have lots of rate memorabilia from various eras in the modern Greek state’s history, on display. We thoroughly enjoyed it and recommend you take advantage of this great opportunity to immerse yourself in modern Greek history!

Was really surprised by the personal walkthrough and detailed explanation of the modern history of Greece dating from the war of independence right through to the Korean War. Great collection of artefacts over the period and artillery, tanks and planes outside.

Location is in the old town which can be reached by bus number 1. Museum covers up to present involvement in peacekeeping duties. Serving soldiers are on duty and one of them acted as my guide. He spoke excellent English and was well informed on the museum's displays.

I went there with a friend that is familiar with military history. It was very nice with a lot of pics especially after the 15th century. It also has two tanks and one aircraft (F5a) in the backyard. One archeology student that did his practicum there was very helpful (Mr. Tsirogiannis).

Kalamata - absolutely charming, lots of small gems, great destination
Feb 2016 • Solo
Visited the beautiful port town of Kalamata on the Costa Neo-Classica in February this year (2016). The place oozes charm, the setting (how beautiful the classic cruiseship looked in the little fishing harbour surrounded by the mountains), the attractions (the Frankish fort/park, the excellent archeological museum, the railway park but most of all the people. The military museum is small but tells the history well. I was shown round by a young soldier on national service. His knowledge, excellent English, and good humour was appreciated. Like the glass of Greek beer sitting in the sunshine in the old town square a little later they are all part of the memories. Kalamata thank you.
