Entrance was 6 euros adults children free but you could get a combined ticket for the museum at Samos town and one other.
For those interested in history, this place is a must. It is an amazingly interesting place, magnificent remembrance of an era gone. However, a some of things are missing. First, proper access, the roads are not easy to follow and no public transport is offered...More

We ended up going twice because the Samos Experience tour includes a visit - this included a bit of information as well as time to explore.
