This museum houses some of the finest exhibits from ancient Olympia. Plan on under 2 hours for this museum.

After you view the ruins, stop by and enjoy the incredible artifacts that have been recovered. Although the museum outside is a bit run down, it's beautiful inside with good labels.

Truly lovely museum with some excellent statues and a real must see when visiting the site of ancient Olympia. Especially the central room 5 displaying the two pediments from the Temple of Zeus which are truly wonderful, beautifully lit and displayed. There is also a remarkable marble bull and how it survived but the helmet of Mitlades from the battle of Marathon 490 BC. 5 stars for this museum and its exhibits. Lovely.

We visited whilst staying on Zakynthos, and thoroughly enjoyed it.
It is a working Archeological site and new artefacts are being discovered on a weekly, if not daily, basis.
Its is a large site and our guide was really informative and helpful.

It is conveniently close to the original site. It is modern, spacious, well-presented and the many artefacts from the site. Magic!
