You might miss this if visiting Nafplio- especially as it closes at 15:00- but don't it has the only full Bronze Cuirass ever found which is phenomenal. If you do go make sure you watch the videos in what looks like the children's area as...More

My kids were bored stiff, but I enjoyed this small museum very much and found the audioguide well done as well. The Mycenaean armor was quite impressive as was the pottery, coinage and jewelry.

Enormous number of artifacts dating back seven thousand years, with comprehensive explanations on the main and upper floor. Free audio guide provides additional information in a clear, easy to follow manner. A great way to spend a few hours while in wonderful Nafplio.

Worth a visit for the Myceneaen artefacts inside - especially the suit if armour that you could imagine Agamemnon's warrior swearing.

Perfectly good little museum with an interesting collection of Greek pottery and other artefacts. Useful on a wet afternoon but would recommend the audio guide which provides explanations, background and context to the items.

This is a real jewel- not too big so you feel you need to spend hours, but you easily could since the collection is pretty incredible. Several extremely rare treasures, all beautifully displayed with excellent information provided in English as well as Greek.

Very nice updated museum of finds from Mycenaean site nearby of Tiron; some prehistoric artifacts. Best known for ceremonial masks and oldest coat of armor from Europe. English descriptions. Definitely plan a visit if in Nafplion.
