History Museum
Discover the beginnings of Western culture at Archaeological Museum at Ancient Olympia, built to house the constant stream of artifacts from ancient Olympia and located just across from an archeological site. The museum houses the Nike of Paeonius, depicted on the 2004 Summer Olympic medals; visit the statue and wonder at her flowing skirt and proud body. The arms and wings exist in pieces, but even the ruins serve as an impressive example of Greek artistry. Other artifacts range from the Archaic to the Roman period with terracotta, bronze, and sculptures. Consider combining the museum with a tour of the archeological site.
