The museum houses collections from ancient cities and civilisations dating from 1800BC. It has the oldest 'complete' set of bronze armour found in Europe and also has a well designed ancient wine cooler! The collections are arranged so as to make understanding the buildings and rituals easy to understand, particularly for the novice archaeologist. It is an amazing collection and... More

The museum is well worth visiting. Entrance is about 6 euros with discount for for elderly etc. The district has been inhabited for the last 40000 years and there are many fascinating exhibits from all periods. It is a comparatively compact museum so a visit won't take too long.

I've been many times to this museum, and enjoy it each time! Yes there are stairs and they are steep, so if someone needs the chair lift, it is available.

If you get overwhelmed with huge National archaeological museums, and disappointed by the mediocre collections in the smaller museums, this one is for you. Only two rooms, but some sgtaggeringly good exhibits, incljuding the unique Mycenaean-period bronze cuirass, and an astonishing collection of finds from Mycaenae and .Tyrins. On the upper floor is a small film theatre with wonderful videos,... More

We have visited Nafplio many times and for some reason we had never visited this museum. Inside are some of the most interesting artifacts which come from various archaeological sites. The "star" is the oldest suit of armor ever found. There is a very interesting film you can watch about when the armor was found and how all the local... More

The museum is well set out and takes you from pre-history to modern times. The audio visual explanation was especially good and gave a good context
