Our hotel manager recommended visiting this museum and we're glad we did. Best surprise was upstairs in the room with the four bronze statues, especially the "Athena of Piraeus"; in our opinion one of the best statues in Greece. The adjacent amphitheatre will make this...More

Not a big collection but the pieces they show are definitely worthwhile to visit the museum. Especially the more than live size bronze statues are impressive.

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.

It's opened from 9 to 3 every day except Mondays. Well of course you could spend hours and hours in there, but I'd suggest you should plan for a visit of at least 2 hours.
