  • Renovated, modern, very interesting, well-organized, with many available media and very explanatory presentation of the exhibits. Friendly staff, very helpful all of them! Grats, don't forget to visit because it ties all the history of the area from 28,000 BC until the Roman times. PS: I wonder about the negative criticism on the structural condition of the building, probably talking about another installation, all were exemplary.

  • Fairly compact museum with well displayed finds from prehistoric through to classical antiquity. Some really important items such as the unique Mycenian armour.  more »
  • A source of knowledge in the center of Nafplio worth the visit. Good will was from the entrance to ask something devices that have recorded tour. Thus, you will understand what you see!

  • The museum has a good exhibition of vases and statues dating since paleolitic period until the neolitic. It is good to visit before you go to the fortresses from where the exhibition items are. It makes more easy to understand the history behind those walls. Interesting place.
  • Fascinating exhibits from the local area dating from Neolithic times. Two unique exhibits you will not see elsewhere: large terracotta wine cooler; Mycenaean suit of armour with boars' tusks helmet. Stairway lift for those with mobility problems. Entrance fee €3 for EU seniors over 65.
  • Extremely helpful with the disabled. Equipped for blind people with text in braille in English, and being mother tongue Italian, they provided us with Italian audioguides free of charge.
  • A must see both in terms of collection and the building outside as well as the atmosphere is impressive
  • Nice museum

Where to stay in Nafplio

If you come to Nafplio to admire its Venetian architecture, book a room in the atmospheric old town. This central part of the city draws the biggest crowds, offering well-appointed rooms in boutique hotels and family-run guesthouses. The new town remains less frequented by tourists, providing clean rooms and good food a short drive from the city center. For fast access to Nafplio's ancient sites, explore the area's fishing villages, where many locals rent out simply furnished rooms near sandy beaches and secluded coves.
