The museum is located next to the Pireaus marina. It is a relatively small place, and appears dated in some areas. Nonetheless, it is well stocked with various maritime and naval artifacts, including ship models, paintings, uniforms, medals, weapons, and more. It also has an...More

The exhibits are fascinating. 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!

As far as museums go, this could be better. Only €4 per person, but the layout and exhibits are only so-and-so. The young person at the reception wasn't able to answer my queries and referred me to office staff at the other end of the...More

A somewhat "out of the way" fascinating maritime museum. If you are interested in ship models, paintings, memorabilia with an hour or so free for €4 great value. Unfortunately a number of the exhibits do not have English translations. The place looks rather closed from...More

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

A little bit of history on the importance of sea ports in Greece, then a lot of models of ships as well as other artefacts related to the seas. Had a really good section on the naval battles of the Giorgios Averof, but I felt...More
