An outstanding collection through the ages that is easy to to navigate and admire! The museum collection was first assembled in 1935 and then housed in the present two-storey building in 1966. The collections are chronological in order but be careful, as the start of this journey through time starts on the upper floor and then continues on the ground... More

A hidden treasure right in the centre of Piraeus, in between shops and apartment buildings: an ancient amphitheatre, and right next to it an Archaeological Museum with some really extraordinary finds! The amphitheatre, quite impressive in size for such an unlikely location, is by far not the only attraction of the museum: it also houses a grave monument from the... More

After the National Archaeological Museum of Athens, another museum, the interested visitor of the beauties of ancient hellenic heritage should see, is the Archaeologial Museum of Piraeus. Beautiful and faschinating antiquities show the unbelevable history of Greece and the early civilization of Europe. A must for everybody.

To be able to see so much history and artifacts was mind blowing. Still feels like it was all a dream. Really want to bring my children someday. Not afraid to dream anymore. They may not come true, but there is a possibility they will.

This was a fascinating afternoon looking at amazing treasures. We were with a guide so we had the advantage of getting more than just a walk through a museum. The beauty of the sculptures is beyond words....from so long ago! The skill of the artisans is astonishing.

I really enjoyed visiting here, some amazing atefacts they have! It cost €2 to enter and you can take photographs as long as you do not use a flash. You must not touch anything as per any museum and you will be followed everywhere you go, however the staff were friendly. Would have got 5 stars if my ''minder'' could... More

Astonishingly pristine-looking pottery and art work 3600y old and more. Unbelievable how much of the pottery which is so beautifully pained has survived.

Stumbled across this while trying to burn up some time until some restaurants opened. The woman at the front desk was nice and even though the sign out front said it was a €4 entrance fee she only charged me €2. After the front desk however the experience was not favorable. The exhibts were much of what I expected but... More

I was fascinated by all the artefacts in the museum. Seeing the fine details in the pottery and statues shows how talented people was ancient times were.
