  • A beautifully designed space that travels in the history of the region. Ideal for families and young people.

  • Small but comprehensive Museum, with numerous findings from all areas of messinian land from remote antiquity to Byzantium and Venetian. A little labyrinthine presentation, but beautiful, aesthetically elegant and complete. In the old town centre, a Museum of jewelry.

  • Super small, very educational Museum with enough little remains but doing very well links the sites of origin.

  • Though of small size, it possesses a really good collection of ancient items from that very rich area. Definitely worth a visit.
  • nice place to visit
  • Amazing historical location containing relics from ancient Mycene.
  • Small, good things Well organized, with a location that is not necessarily obliged, with large, useful, illustrative panels and captions for each object (bilingual). This small museum is air conditioned, has a convenient opening hours (8-20), allows the pictures (no flash, of course). Interesting exhibits ranging from the Mycenaean Palace of Nestor (15th century BC) to the Venetian coins (15th if d.c.) offer a broad overview of the history of the region. Some really nice details, like the bronze sword bent, or rare and precious as a piece of fresco (the Palace of Nestor) that represents a lyre player. ... Enjoyable and accessible for all kinds the audience.
