Incredible treasures - difficult to believe they had been buried for thousands of years. The exhibits are well presented and the information is very informative. It puts the archaeological site into perspective and is well worth a visit.

Well preserved artifacts and friendly staff. It was very comfortable to aimlessly wonder around and absorb at my own pace.

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.
