A hidden gem and a must for any traveler going through Thebes. Quite recently inaugurated, the museum melts discreetly in the city, keeping the surprise well hidden. Beginning with the first hall inside and ending with the last corner outside, one can enjoy an incredibly...More

We had visited Thebes long ago, and toured the old building. Even then, the artifacts and exhibits were pretty impressive. Now, with the expanded space and the many newly-excavated treasures, it is awesome. The star attractions are the "larnakes", clay sarcophagis, which are unique to...More

We did a one-day tour to Thiva only to visit this museum. We really enjoyed the whole exhibition that is well explained. Our kids (12+9 yo) enjoyed it too!

The museum presents the history of Boeotia and Thebes from the Neolithic times up to early Christianity. Lots of exhibits represent everyday life and occupations. Very nicely organised, but be aware that the staff does not allow to take photos of people and exhibits in...More

This newly radically reconstructed museum is exceptional! It provides a chronology of well preserved and exhibited items of Thebes and Boeotia from the Paleolithic periods through the Ottoman empire. Whether you're on your way to Delphi or want a short side-trip from Athens it is...More

A bit off the beaten path for the average tourist, the Thebes Museum is a real gem. It just reopened last summer after being closed for about a decade, it is a fantastic space with some really great artifacts. The easiest way to get there...More
