Info



The most impressive findings from the Delphi area are housed in the museum. The twin Kouroi, the Naxos Sphinx, the statue of the bull made from sheets of silver and the statue of the Charioteer are the most important exhibits.





The Archaeological Museum of Delphi, one of the most important in Greece, exhibits the history of the Delphic sanctuary, site of the most famous ancient Greek oracle.

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 from its early years in the eight century BC to its decline in Late Antiquity.
