  • 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.
