This is on the Olympia site and had great antiquities. Our tour guide selected items to tell us about which was nice.

A well worth visit - some of the artefacts have been moved indoors for preservation Lots of artefacts, friezes, statutes, spears to see. Go with a guide as they can explain quite a bit of the history Photos can be taken but with no flash

You buy a combined ticket to see the museums plus the site for 12 euros with children free. A great collection which took us about an hour to wander around. There was English information for all the displays.

Personally I love sculptures and so this museum was full of plasters, sculptures, war artifacts as well as daily artifacts even some erotica from the period. It is air conditioned and large enough to spend a fair amount of time.

Kids under the age of 18 are free. Lots of walking so wear appropriate foot wear. Make sure you have sunscreen on as you are in direct sunlight most of it. You can go into the museums to cool down as there are 3.
