“Charming way to spend an hour”
Reviewed April 7, 2014 via mobile

We stepped out of the rain, and into the museum. While the focus of our trip was ancient Greece, this was a very charming diversion. There was a low entry fee, and the kids were free. The museum provided some great insight into living in the region in the ninteenth and early twentieth centuries. We found the costumes/traditional dress, and household articles differed greatly from what was used in our region at the time. A fantastic visit.

“SALL BUT BEAUTIFUL”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

Only the building is a beauty for the eyes. You can visit it in half an hour. Don't forget to buy the 18th and 19th century travelers paintings. They will give you an idea of the greatness of the history of Nafplio.

Reviewed October 21, 2013

Brilliant. A unique collection of costumes and accessories from the past together with the history of each item. The tools and looms from the past were in excellent condition and well produced in tableaux form. Only 2 Euros with pensioner discount!!

“...not so exciting”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

My grandmather was born in 1899 and she showed me much more interesting clothes and furniture! This museum lays on two floors: the uppermost has one room and the other one three; really not much to see. Luckily the cost of the entrance is just 3 euros (kids free)
