The grumpy lady behind the desk seemed very annoyed that we wanted to visit the museum. The museum didn’t have much meaning without explanation, which other reviewers seem to have received. I’m sure it’s an interesting collection, I wish I knew why. And I wish...More

This tiny museum/ shop has an amazing collection of komboloi, which are closely associated with the town of Nafplio. There was a great collection of pure amber beads as well as from many other materials. Worth a 20 minute visit.

A small, easily accessible Museum in the center of Old City Nafplion, requiring a small entrance fee. Very nice display of various types of traditional “worry beads” and their historical significance. A gift shop on the main floor offers the opportunity to purchase souvenirs.

Visited here today. Beautiful little museum and shop. The museum gave lots of information on the worry beads and had very old amber ones. We looked forward to this museum after reading about it. We were able to buy beautiful beads in the shop.

I was expecting a bit more explanation and detailed history at the museum. The display is extensive, and they do cover the different materials that have been used to make the komboloi, but I left wanting more info.

This is a very small museum that features Komboloi or worry beads. For 2 euro you can go in and get a little tour. It's something a little different.

It is a place where you can get information about semi precious stones and more than this. There is also a gift shop.

Most tourists will skip this gem of a museum/shop. But if you have the least interest in the Greek cultural institution of komboloi (worry-beads), step in and let the family owners show you around. You can even purchase your own set of beads, including ones...More
