Too expensive for whats there
Sep 2021
Very poor. Only 75% of the exhibition was open and it was 6 euros. No audio guide. If you stay more than half an hour i would be surprised and i am big history buff.

Small and little pricey for what you see
Jun 2021 • Family
Small museum in the heart of Napflio. Most of the great stuff in the national archeological museum. Price is € 12 so a little steep for a family. Good for a rainy day.

Must see

The museum is one of a kind with various exhibits. Could spend a whole day, and then more. But two hours was enough for us

Treasures covering vast swathes of historical eras
Feb 2020
A more perfect home for the superlative collections could not be found. Regarded as one of the best preserved Venetian buildings in the country, it served as the old Navy Arsenal.

From the remote Mesolithic times onwards treasured finds are displayed.

Excavations began at Franchthi Cave in 1967 and were anticipated to be only a short stop-gap, but what was found exceeded all expectations, comprising artefacts at the nexus of hunter-gatherer to settled lives.

Bronze Age exhibits are marvellous and show a range of pottery, figurines and vessels. Mycenaean Palace culture from areas under its rule is fascinating and reflect the sophistication and trade links underway.

Armour and other items from Dendra were another highlight.

Small but Totally Worthy!

Arrived without any expectations and we (hubby & me) totally engrossed with this exceptional collection. I was particularly charmed with some of the smaller items but found so many of their objects fascinating.

We spent ages here, it was really well laid out and the watching the VT we found really useful. Spent far longer here than we expected.

A worthwhile museum to visit
Oct 2019
This is a well displayed museum covering a wide swath of archeological artifacts. They could do a bit better job of explaining the life and times of the people associated with each time period.

The steps heading up to the two floors are very steep, and a bit tricky to maneuver.

But, for a rainy day in Nafplio, it’s a great way to spend a few hours.

Marvelous Local Archeological Museum
Oct 2019 • Couples
In a medieval Venetian building, the Archeological Museum of Nafplion displays local finds from digs in the area. An audio guide is included with the admission charge, €6 for adults, €3 for seniors, students, children, et al. Good exhibits,well-labeled in Greek and English make the museum accessible to all. A video in the second floor tells the story of the Archeological digs with English subtitles.

Fascinating
Sep 2019
This was our fourth visit to Nafplio and we'd never managed to visit this wonderful museum before, as it was always closed at the times we tried! It's housed in a fantastic beautiful old building on the stunning central square of old Nafplio. I believe it used to be a Venetian arsenal?

The museum is simple and utterly fascinating. If you love Greece, and the Peloponnese in particular, it's a must-see. It's been refurbished fairly recently, and is really well arranged over 2 floors. The exhibits are wonderful and very clearly labelled in greek and english. Highly recommended.

Very educational
Sep 2019
A very well presented collection which teaches you a lot about the area's archaeology in a relatively short period of time. Staff friendly although can struggle to answer unexpected questions in English.
