Delphi Archaeological Museum - Review
One of Greece’s most important museums, it houses and cares for the finds made in the pan-Hellenic sanctuary of Delphi. Its fourteen rooms on two floors display mainly elements of sculpture, architecture, decorations, precious offerings, friezes, facades, metopes, bronze works, and other miscellaneous artefacts.
The first museum was founded in 1903 to celebrate the end of the initial round of excavations. The museum you see today was opened at the beginning of the millennium, at the hundredth year of its founding.

Delphi Archaeological Museum, Delphi Reviews
Incredible! They were able to protect many of the broken pieces and structures from the actual site to create a much bigger picture. I would definitely recommend going to the site first, then going to the museum because you'll have a much better idea of the scale of the site, how big it actually is and how grand they designed it. There is a scale model of the site in the museum that helps show where each piece was and the layout that was created to ensure flow of events and ceremonies. It's not small with a gift shop either, there are around 7 rooms decorated pretty thoroughly and offers much more info about rituals, religious practicing and civil events that included emporers and other royalties. It's even good for kids as it has big statues and interesting figurines that children used. I was very pleasantly surprised.
If the weather is good, go climb up the hill to the ruins first. Also, you will have more energy to hike up to the stadium, and save the museum for last. If it rains make a beeline to the museum. The trail is slippy when wet, and it's better to wait for the rain to stop in the museum.
One of the best museums in Greece. Very important exhibits presented in a modern way. Visit first the museum and then the archeological site so as to better understand how the buildings used to be and what was each buildings functions. Especially take a few moments to browse through the virtual reconstruction of the site presented at the monitors at the museum's exit.
The chariot racer was my favorite artifact in the museum. The archeological site is very hilly (as is the rest of Delphi). Wear good walking shoes when you explore it. The ruins are a site to behold. Apollo's temple and the treasury of the Athenians are magnificent. Absolutely worth the drive to see these wonders.
The best museum we visited in Greece! Definitely hire a private tour guide, Christina was amazing with our kids and taught them all the important things in the museum. The sphinx was our family favorite!
