ARCHEOLOGICAL MUSEUM

A new Archaelogical Museum  to house the treasures of the Sanctuary of Olympia became inevitable with the eartquake damage suffered by the first Museum and with the accumulation of so many finds from the excavations in Altis.

The construction was completed in 1975 and in  1982 the exhibitionof the finds was inaugurated. In the framework of renewing the exhibition for the Olympic Games of 2004 in Athens the building was expanded and re-inaugurated and a new exhibitionof antiquities was arranged in accordance with the demands of modern Museology.

It's about 300m from the center of the village Olympia through a new bridge of the river Kladeos. You have to walk for about 4 minutes to go to the Archaelogical Site from the Archaelogical Museum. There are signs in Greek, English and German language everywhere to read the history. I have also in my car the official books for the museum and of course I'll give them to you during your visit there.

You need approximately 1 hour to visit the Archaelogical Museum. The entrance for adults is 6 euro. The combined ticket to visit also the Archaelogical Site is 9 euro. It's free the entrance for children and till 18 years old teens. It's free the entrance for students who have their student identity card with them. Older than 65 years visitors from the Europenian Community can pay the half ticket.

It's open every day, except Mondays, from 8am till 8pm the months between May to October and 8am till 5pm the other months. On Mondays morning the Archaelogical Museum open at 1.30pm till 8pm the months between May to October and 10.30am till 5pm the other months. Sometimes it's possible the Archaelogical Museum to open earlier than 1.30pm on Mondays but I'm able to know it early this morning.
