We didn't go in the museum as we were on a tight time schedule but were able to view the outdoor exhibits which were very interesting.

A egyptian papyrus boat, classic trieremes, ancient amphorae retrieved from ancient wrecks, hundreds of models of ships, from the byzantine dromons to the revolution's trading-war ships, until the modern history of the Balkan wars and WWII. Everything you expect to see...More

Mostly devoted to ancient times, the museum offers also a good collection of IWW/IIWW stuff, including weaponry and even a part of real submarine!

The point of this review is to highlight the wretched opening hours. It is only open from 9.00 am to 2.00 pm on Tuesday to Saturday inclusive. For the National Maritime Museum of Greece, one of the great seafaring nations of the world, that is,...More
