  • The Museum presents sculptures and dishes and other items from antiquity, found by archaeologists during excavations in the city. Everything, only on a much larger scale can be seen in the archaeological museum in Athens. If there was a chance to go to a Museum, there is no need at all to waste time in a small museum.

  • The museum is not too big but packed with exhibits and there were archaeologists there that took the time to explain and litterally take you back into the ages! Well worth the 3€ entrance
  • Beautiful historical museum, located at the old town's central square of Nauplio. Two floors, with many foundings, well maintained as well as in good condition are existing at the museum, which have been discovered from areas around the city. Interesting, educational, worth visiting.
  • A small but very interesting set of displays containing relics recovered from archaeological sites within an hours drive of Nafplio. Fantastic display of Mycenean art, tools, and objects found buried in gravesites. The scope and variety is not as large as the National Archaeoligical Museum in Athens but well worth a visit. One can view all displays in 1 to 2 hours. Be aware the steps leading to the display floor are more difficult than most because they are bigger so one must step about 3-4 inches higher to scale them, but there is a wheelchair lift for those who need such assistance.
  • 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.
  • Great small museum with a free audioguide, excellent exhibits and clear explanations.
