  • One of the best museums of Greece. Must visit if you are in Patras. Is modern with a variety of exhibits and the largest collection of psifidotwn that I have seen. It is at the beginning of the city, while the staff was very helpful and willing.

  • This is a really good place to look at statues, pottery, tools and huge mosaics taken from houses in Patras over recent years. Very well laid out, easy to read in English and Greek, great value at Eur...  more »
  • One of the most modern museums of Europe and in my opinion the second best in Greece. The privacy room with impressed with real time anaparastaseis and the necropolis with the unique exhibits. Very nice space, lighting and presentation. Exhibitions hosted by periods within the Museum also deserve.

  • 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..
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • A very interesting and valuable Museum which will see artifacts from Achaia. Essential destination for every visitor.
