This is the premier collection of Greek antiquities. Whatever they don't have is either at the British Museum or the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC. If you have been enthralled by the legends of Troy and the excavations of Schliemann this is where you...More

I like museums and this is one of the best.The mask of Agamemnon, the Antikythera mechanism, The Artemision Bronze,and the Mycean Rhyton in the shape of a bull’s head are particuarly fine. The exhibts are pleasingly laid out and easy to get around.
