Archaeological Museum of Olympia

22 May

The Archaeological Museum of Olympia is one of the major museums in Greece, and an absolute must see when you disembark from your cruise ship to Katakolon port.

The Archaeological Museum of Olympia was completed in 1975 and the inauguration of the museum took place in 1982. A new archaeological museum to house the treasures of the Sanctuary of Olympia became inevitable with the damage from the 1954 earthquake and with the accumulation of so many findings from the excavations in Altis. The building was expanded and renovated for the Olympic Games of Athens in 2004, and many more exhibits were brought to the museum.
