  • Come to this museum first (this one closes first), then to the other one included in the ticket, then to the archeological site. This museum has the most information about the sporting aspect of Olympia.
  • Great idea to go here before seeing the archeological site - it's well laid out with lots of interesting objects and just the right amount of info, and it provides a good backgrounder on how the site was used, allowing you to reimagine how things were when you visit the site.
  • interestig place about the history of the ancient olympic games
  • Great museum. Must see!
  • Very interesting place
