Archaeological Museum of Olympia

The Archaeological Museum of Olympia is located at the archeological site of the ancient Olympic games in Greece. It houses the artifacts found on site and is one of the best museums I have been to.

I found the items in the museum fascinating, from striking marble and terracotta statues to small pots used to carry olive oil for coating the Olympians’ naked bodies.

The bronze collection is also wonderful and is one of the most important collections of it’s kind in the world.

When we visited in late November we had the museum entirely to ourselves.

Entrance to this museum as well as the Olympic Games Museum is included with the site ticket.
