  • Visited in February 2018 Each art piece 'speaks' to you....so strong is the presence of each one .......stunning sculptures and statues psychologically like being in an ancient temple via time travel!  more »
  • The archaeological museum is located in the old part of the city, near the waterfront. Collecting antiques collected in its walls is inferior to the group, which can be seen in the museums of Athens. Therefore, I think that it is not necessary to visit the Museum of Piraeus. But if you want to see the statues, fragments of buildings and other effects, you can make a tour of the building.

  • 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 museum is often out of the main tours, but it's definitely worth a visit for those who go to Athens or go by the port. The museum has a collection of incredible pieces, including my favorite: the bronze statue of Athena and the numerous clay pots so well conserved. When we went there in September, the place was very calm and we were the only ones there. The ticket is also very cheap.
  • 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.
  • Has a unique collection of marble and bronze statues along with some other exhibits like pottery etc. Some parts of the museum are still under construction and when i visited it was free.
  • 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
