We stopped here on the drive from Athens to Meteora to see the monument but never saw a center or museum nor any signs.

The museum is very different from what you have thought... It's full of technology experience history moments. They use technology to explain the great battle of Thermopylae! It's at the place where the battle happened... Must visit!

Was an impressive museum, very modern and interactive. I really want to come back again and spend more time there. Additionally it is very cheap and close to Lamia(only 3euros).if you want to broaden your knowledge You don't have to miss it.

We came across this place purely by accident when we drove to visit the battle site of Thermopylae. The centre is located about 200 metres east of the Leonidas monument. Because it is not signposted from the main road, it is easily overlooked and appeared...More
