As you explore the museum, you'll learn about the Oracle's political, religious, and artistic significance throughout the ages. The museum has plenty of benches if you want to pause and consider some of the exceptional relics. Once you've finished taking in the exhibits, recharge with a cup of coffee from the on-site cafeteria.

There are part of the gold and amber jewels of Syfnos, a sculpture of Dionysus of the Classic period, some kore or sculptures from the archaic period, with its rigidity and its stereotypical smile and the famous Auriga, which I wanted to contemplate. Countless works of art justify taking time to this visit.

The rooms are spacious, and at least in our case, we enjoyed it because it is not crowded as it happens in very massive places (perhaps it influenced that we have started the visit early). The beauty of the sculptures, and the decorative details of the buildings, remembering that they were built more than 2000 years ago, really wonderful. Although by logic, it would be better to tour the museum first; this is how the models are observed and the history of Delphi is understood, before visiting the ruins; but if the day is sunny, the order should be defined to have less strong sun during the walking tour of the ruins. Highly recommended.
Small museum but well maintained .Parking is free, limited and at the road side. Ticket is valid for the museum and the archeological site keep it for both places. wear comfortable show cos there are some step walk at the site. museum is wheel chair accessible.
Beautiful place full of history and myths. A special atmosphere surrounds this place. The landscape is very beautiful. The visit of the site is to be completed with the museum which has nice art pieces you won't find during visit. I loved this place
