Two buildings to have a look in, loads to see. Park on the seafront and walk through the little park, about 5 minutes away. 4 euros to enter, closed on mondays, and shuts at 3pm on other days.

Очень много достойных экспонатов на любой вкус. Особенно впечатляют витрины, забитые головами грифонов разнообразных мастей и размеров (с бронзовых котлов). I strongly recommend to visit the museum after Heraion to understand what was found inside those gorgeous ruins. The famous giant kuros really impressed all...More

This is quite a small museum spread over 2 buildings, a new and an old. However it has an amazing collection - the best things are the griffin heads in the old building and a huge statue in the new building. It is very well...More

The advantage of a small museum is that you have plenty of time to view the whole collection and then go around again for a closer inspection of the highlights, and there are lots of those here. Whilst most visitors probably come to see the...More

Great place - €4 for an hour or so of looking at ancient history. Wouldn't recommend taking small children as this is not an interactive museum and very quiet when you're inside.

This museum was a little old-fashioned and static, but had a good many interesting small finds from Samos' storied ancient history. The gigantic kouros (Archaic nude male youths) was the highlight of the museum and worth a visit purely on its own. You can spend...More

This is a small museum with some very interesting artefacts', The Kouros is very impressive but although the museum is housed in two separate buildings there is not a great deal more to see compared to other museums. The museum is organised very well with...More

I have been to this museum many times in the past, but not since the renovations that were completed a few years ago. The main sculpture building now has fewer pieces on display, since some have gone to the archaeological museum in Pythagorio. That is...More

Tickets are cheap so we decided to check this out. It's a small museum, but there's lots to see. Seeing the Kouros in person is impressive. Would recommend but nothing exceptional and of great value in archeological sense.

The museum is accessible with a 5 min walk from the free parking space on the boulevard of Vathy, through a beautiful garden. Price is €3 per person. The museum is not that large, but it has a lot of interesting small objects and a...More
