Archaeological Museum of Olympia

Αρχαιολογικό Μουσείο ΟλυμπίαςThe Archaeological Museum of Olympia, one of the most important in Greece, presents the evolution throughout centuries of one of the greatest sanctuaries in antiquity; it was dedicated to Zeus, father of gods and humans, and the cradle of the Olympic Games. The museum contains the permanent exhibition of the findings from the excavations at the sacred site of Altis, which date from the prehistoric to the early Christian times. The most significant among the invaluable findings is the collection of sculptures, which has brought fame to the museum, as well as the collection of bronze artifacts, the richest one in the world, comprising weapons, figurines and other objects; of equal importance is the collection of pottery.
