What a collection! What a building! Do not miss it. You will understand a bit of how Greece was... 3.000 years ago!

I have been to this museum twice, and found although the collections are tightly curated and of a high standard, the staff are letting the place down. I found them too busy chatting to eachother and their friends on the phone, ignoring customers wanting to buy in the shop. The floor staff are rather pompous and supercilious. I think someone needs to conduct a bit of a workshop there and shake things up!

The sculptures, figures and clay pots were all amazing. unbelievable people done that some 4 thousands years ago. So are the jewelry. One can notice where modern artists took their "inspiration from". The small museum is tastefully architectured and curated. Must see.
