Hidden museum, had a little trouble finding it, walked from the cruise terminal. Had been to Athens before, so I wanted to stay in Piraeus. Nice walking neighborhood. Only 4 Euros to get in and the best thing, super cool A/C and no crowds!

Brilliant historic works of art. Poor building is a little tired and old and under-funded. Worth a visit regardless.

With the Athens Archeological Museum being so close, I had pretty low expectations for this small museum; but the reviews on it were pretty good. I figured that it was probably worth the 4€ cost. Upon entering, I was greeted by one of the original...More

I came here and spent an hour but could have spent 3 or 4 the historic pieces they have there are outstanding and blew my mind, will come back when I have more time the statues are particularly well preserved!

It's opened from 9 to 3 every day except Mondays. Well of course you could spend hours and hours in there, but I'd suggest you should plan for a visit of at least 2 hours.
