Best Museums to See in Greece


When it comes to history and culture the list is endless in Greece. If you want to get a taste of just some of the most impressing museums of the country, here is where you need to go next!



Delphi

Delphi is about two hours drive from Athens. In the ancient times, Delphi was considered to be the centre of the world. People from all around the word would travel to Delphi to offer treasures to the Gods of Olympus and get a piece of advice from Pithia, the sacred prophet of the Greek ancient years.
The museum of Delphi is an absolute must as you will have the chance to see and admire the amazing statues that are kept inside and the amazing art that is out of this world.
Have in mind you need to spend almost the whole day on the archaeological sight and the museum as there is so much to see. But the only thing is sure, you will absolutely love it!





Delos- Mykonos


Delos is the Greek Island of the ancient times that remain untouched almost. There are no inhabitants on the island as the whole island is protected and has guards. Visiting Delos is an amazing experience. The vibe and the feeling of the island with so many ancient treasures will make you travel back in time where Delos was the financial centre of Greece and Greeks from around the country were bringing offers to the Greek Gods and were creating the most amazing sculptures and art. You will see the ancient mansions with unique mosaics and wonderful statues inside the museum of Delos that will blow your mind!
You can get to Delos from Mykonos on a small ferry. You will find daily routes. If you are on the island during August make sure you book your ticket early.
Swimming is forbidden around Delos.
 





Athens


Athens has a big list of must see museums. The Acropolis museum is definitely on top of the list. You will need to spend a day only visiting the museum as there is so much to see. You will see the amazing statues that used to be in Acropolis throughout the years of its life and the different eras of the ancient Greek history.
The top floor is dedicated to the marbles of Acropolis that are still kept in the British museum after Elgin stole them from the temple. When you go to the top floor you will see a replica of the marbles and this is a statement that the marbles need to come back where they belong.
After you finish your visit, enjoy the stunning view to the temple of Parthenon from the big terrace of the cafe restaurant to complete your travel experience.
You can get to the museum of Acropolis by the metro and stop at the Acropolis metro station and once you come up you will be at the doorstep of the museum. Or you can walk around the historical centre and explore the amazing neighbourhood of Acropolis like Plaka, Thissio and Monastiraki.
