    The museum itself if you are not an old greek linguistic or historian, there are only ancient big marble block written in many years BC like decrees etc. During all the time there was a personnel man following me even though I was alone and no one else. Only after I realize that he didn't follow me for the historical piece safety. So after I finished I went back to take my bag to the two ladies in the entrance to take my bag, and also asked for the entrance of the National Archeological museum but she didn't reply, and showed me an angry face. I took my back, and I knew that something was wrong, and I was walking to the main door and as I was walking I checked my wallet, there were missing 150euros and in my wallet were left only 50euro plus 10 euro. All my money were in 50euros each. I was at the exit door outside. In the morning I took with me 200euros and I was sure plus 10euro, and all this time I never took out my wallet. I want back and gently I asked them, (now the man that was following me was with the ladies), all the three when they saw me coming back they had a face ready to attack me, I told them if they were sure that my bag was safe there with them? Asked twice as they act as didn't understand . I saw behind them all other bags in the table. The big lady replied to me very angry, she said what do you think that we all three do here! and all of them with angry faces were ready to attack me. I told them seriously, Ok thank you, then.

  • You have to visit this museum. It teaches you another important aspect of the social and political life of the Ancient Greece. This museum must be more advertised. Am really glad i visited it.

  • Love love love this museum. So worth the 2 euros. Please go.

  • little bit far from city center. but it is great to learn history of Greece. loooooootttttttts of statues and ancient stuffs. when you see whole museum, it takes over 3 hours.

  • Very interesting, but quite monothematic

  • Wonderful collection of historically important documents from 500 BC to 500 AD— some beautifully sculpted, and several rooms with good labeling, including documents from the Persian War, Peloponnesian War, and Roman era.
