  • Located bit to the side from the main archaeological site and museum, this one could be easy to overlook. Entry is included in the same ticket so it’s worth to go take a look if you have the time...  more »
  • I loved seeing the birth place of the ancient Olympics. But my favorite bit, in addition to the museum and this whole place was seeing the remains of Phineus workshop.  more »

  • Well documented and rich museum. Is better to visit before the site. The opening hours are 08:00 to 20:00 (last entrance at 19:45).
  • Very interesting museum, gives a great history of the Olympics, their purpose, what they were originally like, how the started and so on, and there are some fabulous sculptures, mosaics, and artifacts. Well worth the €12 ticket (which gets you into the 2 other main attractions in Olympia too). It's open to 20.00pm too, which is great.
