Delphi Archaeological museum is one of the principal museums of Greece and one of the most visited. It exhibits the history of the Delphic sanctuary, site of the most famous ancient Greek oracle.
The Museum shelters the extensive artifacts unearthed during excavations at the Delphi oracle and its vicinity. It is located adjacent to the archaeological site, and it is one of the top must-see museums in Greece, mainly because of the breadth and quality of artifacts it includes which date from the Mycenean period to the decline of the Oracle in Late Antiquity and the early Byzantine era.
Its rich collections are comprised primarily of architectural sculpture, statues and minor objects donated to the sanctuary. These reflect its religious, political and artistic activities.
Founded in 1903, the Museum has been rearranged several times, and today is housed in a two-storey building with a total surface area of 2270 square metres, with fourteen exhibition rooms.
