As you explore the museum, you'll learn about the Oracle's political, religious, and artistic significance throughout the ages. The museum has plenty of benches if you want to pause and consider some of the exceptional relics.

    It is among the finest educational tours I have done. The tour both in the archaeological site and the Museum is top for young and old.

    This museum is full of the parts found on the archaeological site of Delphi. It is necessary to visit the Museum before venturing on the archaeological site in order to have a good understanding of places.

    Over 65s get a reduced rate! Amasing to think of the workmanship done all those years ago. Today what is built is short lived.  more »

    Great museum with well preserved artifacts from Delphi. Will provide good context prior to seeing the ruins. Highly recommend visiting.

    Great place for a day trip from Athens. The museum and site can be done together.

    Beautiful forested area, good modern roads to Arachova and Ancient Delphi.

    One of the best Archaeological Museums in Greece. The museum is modern and it has excellent explanations of all the transformations Delphi went through over the centuries. Some of the best art pieces of Ancient Greece are displayed here.

    Great museum. One of the best archaelogical museums in Greece. I found the presentetion of the museum being turned a bit old fashioned and the of the orders of the chiefguard a bit restrictive (like no photos (without a pose) near the artifacts). Neather the less the museum holds some trully unique artifacts like the reliefs from the athenian tresure, the impresive statue of the sphinx and the bronze statue of the charioter.

Where to stay in Delphi

Despite its popularity with tourists, Delphi offers plenty of affordable hotel lodgings even at peak season, though you must book early if you want a room with a view of the Gulf of Corinth. Travelers looking for budget-friendly options can try one of the area's inns, where friendly service and easy access to good shops and restaurants compensate for a lack of modern amenities. Alternatively, visit Delphi's ancient sites from one of the boutique hotels clinging to the slopes of nearby Mount Parnassus.
