Once you've toured the Ancient Olympia ruins, stop by this museum which is near the entrance to the site to view many artifacts related to the Ancient Olympic Games.

“Interesting....”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Set in the "old" Museum of Olimpia on a hill overlooking the site. Interesting exhibits which augment understanding of the ancient Olympic games held here.

“Very Interesting Museum”
Reviewed May 5, 2012

This was the old archaeological museum which the archaeological service and others have made a very clear and helpful explanation of the mechanics of the ancient games. One learns a lot.
