This museum is a must linked in with a visit to the Valley of the Temples. Covers from the Micinians right through to the Roman occupation.

Outside you have some ruins and they are excavating more but go inside and allow plenty of time. There is room after room of ancient artefacts, some in remarkable condition. Be sure to see the coin collection and the only nearly complete statue of a...More
