Although we had seen several similar collections earlier in our trip, we found the presentation of the artifacts over the millennia quite well done here. Our only complaint is that we found out that there was an audio guide only by seeing a couple using one on the second floor. The staff had not told us about such a guide.... More

A beautiful, intimate small museum with excellent displays and artifacts. It is well worth the hour-long visit to get a better understanding of the area's history and art.

Small but very elegant. Good presentation and well informed staff. Many items from the area was nicely displayed. Some rather rear units to be seen. Available with wheal chair.

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 loved this museum and visited just after Palamidi. (There are ten tortuous stairs up to the desk after Palamidi's 999) Beautifully displayed exhibits ranging chronologically and geographically. 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
