  • Going to visit the archaeological site of Delphi visiting the Museum is a worthy conclusion. The ticket is understood and the Museum is modern well maintained with beautiful sculptures in bronze or marble to more modern times (Roman), is of suitable size so it isn't too demanding or dispersive. I think it should go before the ruins whose entrance is a few hundred meters later and then the Museum. Remember that then after about 1 km you can go and see the source kallista and Athens Pronaia which is free entry and it is wonderful and is the symbol of Delphi. I would like to remind those who go to Delphi Spt off-season to bring some food for the beautiful cats that we have on the site.

  • The museum is on the site, we don't miss it; many splendid tresors of antic Delphes, a very nice bronze statue, a symbol of the Phytique Games, like Olimpic Games 
  • This museum form part of the Delphi archaeological site and is included on the the same ticket. The museum is set out in spacious chambers and displays many of the artefacts found in the adjacent dig....  more »

  • 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.
