“Buy the book first”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

This museum is not huge , but is air conditioned and has a reasonable snack bar , it is situated opposite the main site . The friezes and statues are not always self explanatory and that guide is an essential .

“Good to visit after the archaeological site tour”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

The museum isn't big, so it's worth visiting after the outdoor site. I think it's good to have a licenced guide as you get alot more understanding and information this way.

My kids liked it and found it quite interesting.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed 7 July 2013

Very quick museum to see and really helps you see how this ancient site really looked over 2000 years ago. The statue of Hermes was excellent and so hard to believe this was created so long ago with the level of craftsmanship that is has. Amazing!
