The collection here is extraordinary - especially of Greek vases and coins - a gem of a museum - Don't bypass when you see the temples

I visited recently with friends and took the part in the walking tour – It’s a MUST see! Our guide was brilliant with mounds of knowledge. We visited at sunset and got some beautiful photos. Wear appropriate shoes, theres lots of hills/steps/tracks routes to walk

As a afterthought we decided to walk the museum and were glad we did. Artifacts from many eras with some placards with good information. Note: some of the pieces did not have english translation which was somewhat of a disappointment.

Their collection of ancient pottery is the main display really, they have thousands of pieces. Make sure to take some time to walk through the gardens and admire the view over the Valley of the Temples.

I presume our knowledge of ancient pots is too limited to fully appreciate what’s on display at the museum. We liked the giant statue that’s skillfully put together at the lowest level, though.

Worthwhile visit if you are up for a walk through uneven terrain with some hills and steps. The views alone are beautiful as you can look to the sea below. The Columns and remains are in very good condition and massive. Reminded me of the...More
