Discover the beginnings of Western culture at Archaeological Museum of Olympia, built to house the constant stream of artifacts from ancient Olympia and located just across from an archeological site. The museum houses the Nike of Paeonius, depicted on the 2004 Summer Olympic medals; visit the statue and wonder at her flowing skirt and proud body. The arms and wings exist in pieces, but even the ruins serve as an impressive example of Greek artistry. Other artifacts range from the Archaic to the Roman period with terracotta, bronze, and sculptures. Consider combining the museum with a tour of the archeological site. Put Archaeological Museum of Olympia and other Olympia attractions into our Olympia trip website, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Very Interesting and worth to visit. Try first to go to the museums, while it's hot and then go to the Area. At the Museums you are going to need 2-4 hours, depending of how interested you are. After you can go to the area and enjoy the colours of the sunset. It's amazing
  • Amazing museum, lots of remaining ancient Greek artifacts. We had a great tour guide who told us a lot about the statues and remainings of the Olympia secret grounds. We also took a nice sprint in the stadium.
