Very worthwhile to complete the visit to ancient Olympia. We visited the Olympic Games Museums whilst touring the Archaeological Site. Inexpensive and many interesting ancient artifacts to see. Easy to get into and adjacent to the archaeological site

Lots of walking and lots to see. The ruins are barely there, so the museum will fill you in with lots of history and events relate to the Olympic games. The best way to appreciate it is with a guide. We didnt stay too long...More

It’s all there in one place - games, the museum, etc. Might as well see it all. But at some point there is overkill. It’s in an out of the way place. See them all but it starts to get repetitive.

a short walk from the museum, on good road, then a walk around the rugged paths between the ruins. Not easy for people with walking difficulties. Would not be easy to traverse with wheelchairs. With a knowledgeable guide you appreciate the history. Unfortunately earth quakes,...More

We enjoyed the visit to the Olympic ruins to see where the first Olympic Games were held. It is impressive to walk where people had been living and building huge, sophisticated structures over 3K years ago.

It you have already traveled to Ancient Olympia to see the great ruins then your second stop needs to be the Olympic Museum. It makes for a great day.

In Olimpia, for only 12 euros, you can buy the pass for three attractions : the archaeological site, the museum of the archaeological site and the museum of the Olympics. The first two are very close, but the third is at a distance that would...More

Brilliantly preserved ruins, much bigger than I expected but the majority of the place is still extremely well preserved as you would have seen them back in the day. The infamous stadium is worth a visit, as well as the temple where the Olympic Torch...More

this is a place where all the torches were lit, that's why you can not see them anymore; this is just a starting point for their journey, that's correct.

Most are in the small museum attached to the Panathenaic Stadium located in Athens and definitely worth a visit. Many of the official art and posters located here as well.
