  • A good collection of finds of Roman period. Top collection of mosaics and very interesting pre-historic findings position in Patras. Also, the building as architecture is very interesting, but perhaps a little aggressive the dome of the Amphitheater. It is worth mentioning other art exhibitions presented at the same time. Missing a small bar-Brown while the shop could be fuller. But worth a visit anyway.

  • This museum has some reconstructed houses, a reconstructed private bath, and several excellent mosaics. They also have a second floor that is just for viewing the houses and mosaics from above. 
  • we did an interactive activity in the museum and we were impressed by its exhibition. It should be more known to everyone. 
  • The new museum in Patras is probably the city's best-kept secret. I went there on a Sunday (they are open and they're shut on Mondays) and had the place all to myself. There is no food and drink that can be bought on the premises so, for now at least, be prepared to go a little hungry and thirsty but it's worth it. The exhibits are tremendous. They provide deep insight into the past of a country where if you get out in the street and dig a few metres down you're going to discover antiquities. They have curated some of the best finds and the effect is indescribable. I sat mesmerised looking at a 3,000 year old skeleton whose owner had died a violent death. You think, "this feels like a movie" except it's all real.
  • The museum possessed fabulous collections, very well arranged and documented. There are many beautiful pieces but just enough so you don't feel bored like it could happen in some big museum. The museum show the human side of historical past. The temporary exposition of a greek artist was the cherry on top of the cake. A must if you are in the area.
  • A short visit, but really fascinating. In particular, I would like to thank the staff who went out of their way to assist me on that day. Thank you..
  • is the best Museum of Patras
