Interesting visit to the museum after the walk in the valley. The giant column on display is worth the visit.

I visited recently with friends and took the part in the walking tour – It’s a MUST see! Our guide was brilliant with mounds of knowledge. We visited at sunset and got some beautiful photos. Wear appropriate shoes, theres lots of hills/steps/tracks routes to walk

Compared to the Valley of the Temples, there were hardly any tourist here. All to the good, IMO, we had the museum basically to ourselves. The holdings are comprehensive, the original Telamon and collected Telamon heads are awe-inspiring, many other exquisite artifacts. If you're in...More

Look it up on the site. How do you expect a one-time tourist to know something like this?
