About Archaeological Museum of Olympia

The Archaeological Museum of Olympia showcases treasures from one of the most iconic ancient sites in the world. The museum opened in 1882 and complements the fascinating Olympia archaeological site, which was once a Panhellenic religious sanctuary and site of the inaugural Olympic Games.

The museum galleries are filled with archaeological finds, with items spanning from the prehistoric period to the Roman era. The main hall houses the museum's showpiece, a reconstruction of the magnificent Temple of Zeus assembled with original architectural relics. Other galleries display beautifully made ceramics, statues and ornate offerings to Greek gods, such as Zeus and Hera.

The collection of bronze items is particularly impressive. Other notable pieces include a marble statue of Hermes carved by Praxiteles in the 4th century. Wandering around the ruins of the Olympia archaeological site will put the collection into perspective. Tickets also include entry to the Museum of the History of the Olympic Games of Antiquity and the Museum of the History of the Excavations in Olympia.

Getting there

The Archaeological Museum of Olympia is located in the Olympia village centre, a five-minute walk from the main bus stop. The site is a 20-minute drive from Pyrgos and 3.5 hours from Athens. Parking is available on site and Athens International Airport is a 3.5-hour drive away.
