Interesting and well explained as a history of Zea and Piraeus. Lots of beautiful original artefacts which are logically displayed. Go outside to see the amphitheatre which is well preserved.

Hidden museum, had a little trouble finding it, walked from the cruise terminal. Had been to Athens before, so I wanted to stay in Piraeus. Nice walking neighborhood. Only 4 Euros to get in and the best thing, super cool A/C and no crowds!

It is a long walk or a bus ride from the metro. This museum has some interesting ancient exhibits including some large gravestones. Also good information on the history of this port town. There were guards inside who tend to follow you around quite obviously....More

Brilliant historic works of art. Poor building is a little tired and old and under-funded. Worth a visit regardless.

With the Athens Archeological Museum being so close, I had pretty low expectations for this small museum; but the reviews on it were pretty good. I figured that it was probably worth the 4€ cost. Upon entering, I was greeted by one of the original...More

I came here and spent an hour but could have spent 3 or 4 the historic pieces they have there are outstanding and blew my mind, will come back when I have more time the statues are particularly well preserved!

It's opened from 9 to 3 every day except Mondays. Well of course you could spend hours and hours in there, but I'd suggest you should plan for a visit of at least 2 hours.
