  • Very good Museum with several striking findings. The surrounding area also with interesting exhibits. A bit under-represented compared to the museums of Athens.

  • The surprise we felt with our visit here was unexpected!!! This is Museum-masterpiece with incredible works, unique aesthetics and history while the collection of bronze statues truly breathtaking, inducing AWE in visitors. The outside area with the ancient theater within dominates carries the visitor back into other spatio-time ... The building however though it has comfortable halls renovation and surely it must be a larger view!! In each case the Piraeus after visiting here, exuded flair ...

  • Visited the Archaeological Museum of Piraeus, with its exceptional and rare collection of bronze statues! a sensational bronze Athena, also admired, the oldest extant cast statue in Greece, a Kouros dedicated to God Apollo, two statues of Artemis and a theatrical tragedy mask-all brass works of the 4th century. e.g. over marble, ceramics and historical treatises. Unforgettable!

  • I enjoyed the top class and diverse collection of antiquities. Nice serene setting. The entrance is affordable and a visit will take about 1 to 2 hours.
  • Very few explanations of the pieces. No history descriptions around. Some interesting statues and pieces... May as well skip it for the 4 euro entrance fee and just see the Athens archaeological museum.
  • An interesting little museum. The sculptures that have been under sea for many years are worthy of a visit
  • A small but realy great archaeological museum. Great bronge statues.
  • The museum has a 60s vibe but it has some of the most impressive bronze statues from antiquity I have seen. It is just a stone's throw from the port of Piraeus and you can see it in an hour. For the price of just 4 euros it's something you just have to see if you find yourself in Piraeus.
