History Museum Museum
Delphi Archaeological Museum houses ancient artifacts discovered at the Oracle of Delphi, spanning from the shrine's founding in the 18th century BC, to its decline in Late Antiquity. The fourteen exhibit rooms feature sculptures, statues, and other objects that were offered to the Oracle, as well as fragments from the sacred building. 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. Once you've finished taking in the exhibits, recharge with a cup of coffee from the on-site cafeteria.

  • Come on Delphi for the day we started by the Museum as recommended by some and it is a good idea. Comments in french on signs allowing to better appreciate the history of the site. Damage not d. audio guide as often in Greece. But the quality of the collection's worth and then gear on the archaeological site with all the right information!

  • Rich, very interesting Museum. It is essential in addition to visiting the site. Correct price.

  • Absolutely viewing along with the visit to the ruins. Here are all kinds of pieces that cleared away to preserve them better. To visit by both, you get a good idea of how it looked like there used to be.

  • 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.
