This museum's pride and joy is a suit of armor that was found close by from the age of Mycenae. It tells the story of the area surrounding Nafplia and its development from prehistory.

You might miss this if visiting Nafplio- especially as it closes at 15:00- but don't it has the only full Bronze Cuirass ever found which is phenomenal. If you do go make sure you watch the videos in what looks like the children's area as...More

My kids were bored stiff, but I enjoyed this small museum very much and found the audioguide well done as well. The Mycenaean armor was quite impressive as was the pottery, coinage and jewelry.

Enormous number of artifacts dating back seven thousand years, with comprehensive explanations on the main and upper floor. Free audio guide provides additional information in a clear, easy to follow manner. A great way to spend a few hours while in wonderful Nafplio.
