Reviewed February 28, 2013

Take some time to check out the artifacts and learn about the history of the Delphi area. Certainly worth the visit.

“Small but charming!”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Very intersting museum. It is not very big (like the Acropolis one), but it is extremely interesting. You can see also the famous INIOHOS (chariot rider), the only cooper statue that is saced from this era, an amazing scultpure with extreme details.

“Interesting”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

It was very interesting with many artifacts, paintings, and statues to admire. The last room before the exit is somehwat hands-on/interactive. We were able to make it through in about an hour. While we wished we could have entered prior to visiting the ruins as to have more information about the temple, it was nice to have some air conditioning after our long trek through the ruins.

“OK”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

We didn't have enough time to spend in the museum due to limited winter hours. We raced there from the ruins with only about fifteen minutes left (they didn't rush us out though, and she gave us new tickets after mine had fallen out of my pocket wondering the ruins). Given more time I might have enjoyed the museum more, but I thought it was just OK. Small enough to get through in a time crunch; some nice items - the sphinx was quite impressive as were a couple of other objects which made me very glad we were able to make it before it closed. My 10-yr-old daughter and I had the choice to visit the Temple of Athena ruins down below or make it to the museum earlier, and we decided we preferred experiencing the ruins to wondering the museum. I recommend making it if you can, but I think the ruins are more interesting myself. Free wifi near the cafe.

“Go to the museum before seeing the ruins”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

Walked from our hotel in town down to the museum, really enjoyed the museum, well laid out, beautiful statues and all the reliefs from the temples are housed here, so interesting to see them before heading out to see the ruins themselves. There's a nice little cafeteria outside the museum, it was a bit pricey but a good place to get a snack and something to drink before heading out into the hot sun to see the sites.

Also of note, we spent 2 1/2 weeks in Greece, in the Peloponnese and several islands, and we thought the museum and shops in the town of Delphi had, by far, the best selection of good quality souvenirs/replicas to be found anywhere in Greece, so stock up!
