I have visited this museum several times and always loved it. Also, it is open on Sundays, and has a little coffee shop with a great shaded garden space to sit around, and also small but nice souvenir shop. And of course, you cannot beat the treasures in the museum, cycladic statues, golden masks from Troy, the famous ship wreck exhibition, bronze and marble statues.... It is a gem.

My husband and I spent 6 hours visiting this museum.It is unbelievable how modern and actual these civilizations could be.There are exposures from 5.000 BC, Neolithic Period. Amazing!
I suggest that before visiting any archaeological site in Athens to make a visit to this museum. It's enlightening, organized and didactic. A real history lesson! Everything will be easier to understand after having had contact with the Museum explanation.

Its a great museum, but if you've done the acropolis museum, its a lot of the same sort stuff - just a better museum. Massive place, so go fresh - not tired! Worth the visit.

Very nice museum. We explored the museum and we saw amazing things inside. It is like the history talking to you through the artifacts. Egyptian gallery is a must see.

Be sure to see the part about the shipwreck. Also Agammemnon's death mask. Also it was cool during a hot spell.
