“Nice museum”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

Do not miss this museum because it gives you much more understanding of the Olympia site and history. Buy a combined ticket, it will save you money. You do not have to visit the museum and the site on the same day.

“Archaeology At It's Best”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

If you love history and interesting artifacts then you must see this place. The area is beautiful and green, lots of trees and not to mention such a big place. It is well presented and very interesting facts and things to look and ponder over.

“Small but incredible museum”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

After a visit to the site of Ancient Olympia, touring the Archaeological Museum is a must! The opportunity to view the pediments & metopes from the Temple of Zeus alone is worth the price of admission. Other highlights include the Nike of Paeonius, the helmet of Miltiades, and the Hermes bearing the infant Dionysus.

The museum is small enough to be managed in 1.5-2 hours, and, has numerous benches, which is important after you've spent the morning on your feet, and the afternoon on marble floors. There is also a small cafe with bathrooms next door. (But it is bring your own toilet paper!)

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed February 4, 2014

This is a beautiful museum and supports the archeological ruins nicely. That said, we didn't spend a lot of time inside.
