  • Museum adjacent to the archaeological area. The plastic at the entrance immediately gives the idea of the magnificence of the site in antiquity. Works of absolute historical value including, not to be missed, the Sphinx of the Nassi, the Auriga, in bronze, and the Chrysbiolist statues. How wonderful! Admission 12 euros, inclusive of the visit to the site.

  • Nice addition to the archaeological site. Sculptures, pottery, tools etc. found on the site. With an explanation in Greek, English and French and where and how it was found. At the end an interactive map on a big screen, where you can find out everything you didn't know yet.

  • Small museum but well maintained .Parking is free, limited and at the road side. Ticket is valid for the museum and the archeological site keep it for both places. wear comfortable show cos there are some step walk at the site. museum is wheel chair accessible.
  • Beautiful place full of history and myths. A special atmosphere surrounds this place. The landscape is very beautiful. The visit of the site is to be completed with the museum which has nice art pieces you won't find during visit. I loved this place
  • A painting shows the former look of the temples, which was very enlightening. Some of the statues were really nice and even surprising! The light on some of the objects could have been better. Also, basic information about the site was not fully provided. For fans of mythology and ancient Greece it is very much worth the visit!
  • A wonderful museum with beautifully laid out exhibits. The bronze charioteer was the final display. So lovely. I recommend visiting.
  • Not too big but very interesting. Well maintained with a nice physical model of the site. Parking is limited. The ticket is valid for the museum and the archeological site so keep it till you visit both places.
