Their collection of ancient pottery is the main display really, they have thousands of pieces. Make sure to take some time to walk through the gardens and admire the view over the Valley of the Temples.

This museum is worth visiting just to see the scale model of the Temple of Zeus. The admission can be purchased together with the admission for the temple ridge.

This museum is nice, there are a few collection inside. It is not comparable with the one of Siracusa, first because is not so large then because is not so well organized.
