We found this museum quite interesting, learning about Greek history and clashes in the past as well as the recent Second World War - the video about the life of Greeks under Germans was particularly of interest. It’s worth 30min-1 hour our time.

I was just chilling out and do not know why I walked in here. It was pretty sad - lots of photos and little else of consequence.

The low entrance fee balances the lack of content, because the number of exhibits is small. You can roam it in less than 40 minutes. I hate it when museums consist of photos and texts to read. What is the point of that? Museums should...More

Located in the center of the old town, the museum has two floors, stairs only and entrance 3€. Many info if you like this kind of history, great hit for young boys, since it has a lot of real guns!!

It worth a visit for history lovers, but also for those willing to know more about modern Greece. Museum is just two floors + temporary exhibition: one floor is about WWII, with war-time posters against Mussolini and Italian invaders (shame on us!). The other floor...More

The museum is located in the centre of the town in a beautiful traditional building. No elevator, only steps. You can see the war history of the area. I found it very interesting.

Nafplio is not just pretty and lovely; it has layers and layers of stories to tell. Visit the museum, meet the wondefful people who resisted and won.

This is a small, two-level museum that covers most of Nafplio's military history from around 1800 on (the small downstairs annex covers an earlier period). Admission was 3 euros (the place seems to be run by the Greek Army), and most of the artifacts were...More

Whilst many exhibits had English language descriptions displayed, I had only a vague feel for the background and causes of the various battles and campaigns. Obviously this is because of my complete ignorance of Greek modern history - but I can't be alone in this...More

Whilst the guards at the entrance are extremely polite and welcoming, the museum itself is a bit disappointing in that it feels abandoned. Nafplio has been a very important city in modern Greece, and this museum does it no justice. Pitty!
