You go into a small town museum with thoughts of a few poorly presented artefacts with little or no explanations given. But this small museum is a gem. I just wish I had seen the video presentation on the second floor before going to places like Lerna, Tyrian and Mycenae as it was a great explanation of early Greek history... More

A great adjunct to visiting any of numerous archeologic sites. Wonderful collection of artifacts, but could do with more historic introduction and context.

I've never seen such clear and easy-to-follow sequencing in an archeological museum. I got a really good sense of all of the different excavations in the region. Also, there's a really cool... More

An excellent small museum with well-presented artifacts, including the famous Dendra armour from the early Bronze Age. Well worth visiting!

The museum houses collections from ancient cities and civilisations dating from 1800BC. It has the oldest 'complete' set of bronze armour found in Europe and also has a well designed ancient wine cooler! The collections are arranged so as to make understanding the buildings and rituals easy to understand, particularly for the novice archaeologist. It is an amazing collection and... More
