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!

There is not much to see, but one can imagine how the narrow pass must have looked in the 5th century BC, when 300 Spartans and 700 Thespians held off the enormous Persian army for days. Apparently dirt from water flows during the past 2.5...More

This is a great pilgrimage for anyone who is interested in SPARTANs. But the centre is not clearly marked-no indication that it is a visitor*s centre in English. We enjoyed the visit, with the monument ,last stand and nearby thermal springs. We got there by...More
