  • If you don't see the Charioteer, Kouroi, the Oracle, the theater, the Temple of Apollo, how are you you call yourself Greek? View the Toytagchamonta in Egypt, view and the Charioteer of Delphi Museum. Make comparison. One is paint on the wall and the other art. Contemplate ...

  • Katapliktiko Museum. Protects a few of the important ancient works that have survived from the looters. It is wonderful to see how was the place once. The existed that no longer exists because it was stolen, why was destroyed.

  • If something is definitely worth to visit a Museum and lover of nature is the archaeological site and the Museum of Delphi. Immaculately preserved in "transfer" in ancient Greece.

  • A very interesting look into the past. The climb to the top of Delhi wasn't to bad ,just wear good Shoes the steps are polished from all the visitors and are slippy be careful ... seen more than one person loose there footing.
  • A really nice museum worth seeing if you driving by or you're in the vicinity. We only did the museum because my sister was 9 months old and they told us it was a good hike for the actual ruins. Still very nice and highly recommended.
  • The museum and the archeological site are really fantastic and very interesting. I highly recommend to wear hats, closed shoes and avoid too hot hours for the site since it's on a large steep slope, very exposed to the sun. The museum hosts beautiful statues and restings. Overall a most-see.
  • I have visited the site before the 2004 renovation. The new museum with numerous excibits is indeed a cultural jewel.
  • Great museum with some amazing sculptures. The sheer number is astounding with a visit and make sure to do the audio tour.
