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.

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!

This is a wonderful (free) war museum. The destruction by the Nazis is evident in the photos. Other military artifacts are very interesting. We have visited more than once.

Set is two buildings, a relatively small museum with some very interesting historic photoes and exhibits. Cheap entry - Euro 3 with reductions.

Not really worth the visit. Mostly pictures and a few uniforms and weapons and the staff were not very polite.
