This museum is quite understated. No grand building or facade but it is full of treasures. Visit the Museum before the site to get better context.

The only museum in Greece related exclusively to the Mycenaean Civilization. Plenty of useful information and artifacts on the social organization, the daily life, the currency, the writing and the funerary offerings. Plus, some more information on the famous Mycenaean fortifications (constructed by the Cyclops) and the water supply system, the mythology of Mycenae (related somehow to Hercules) and the writings of the explorers during the 19th and 20th centuries.

Nice little museum, offering a nice perspective of how the ancient site used to be and the things which were found there.

We can visit the museum on 11th August. There are finds from the site, however the best artefacts are visible at National Museum in Athens.

We found the museum delightful but busy as it wasn't a huge space. It was modern and newly done it seemed. Very nice collections and explanations. We'd go to other places around the country on our trip and was amazing how much other museums referenced back to this place.

Situated next to the toilet building the museum can be visited. Interesting and beautiful items displayed tell you the history of the citadel. Text are in English and Greek.

We visited the museum after touring the archaeological site, but I agree with another post that said stopping at the museum before touring the archaeological ruins might give you a better perspective about what you were going to see. The museum is also where the only restrooms are located, so if it has been on a long ride to get there, this may be the first place you will want or need to visit. The museum is small and does not take a lot of time, but the artifacts and information provided are useful in understanding the site. This was part of a day trip out of Athens for which we had hired a car and driver. There were three of us, and it was just as cheap as riding on a tour bus. One downside is that the driver isn’t allowed to go into the site with you, so you don’t have a tour guide once you are there.

Fasinating small museum. This museum contains artifacts that were found around the ruins of Mycenae, Greece. I liked it better than the ruins. Seeing the pottery, artwork, weapons, death masks brings the ruins to life. What was fascinating is the artifacts date back to 1500 BC and older. Saw the so called death mask of Agamemnon, the king of Mycenae in Greek mythology. On display were templates with pre-printed greek letters and symbols, the earliest form of the Greek language. Also on display were the different coins the civiliazation used as currency. Hard to fathom all this was BC.

I missed this museum on my first visit to the archeological site, and I'm glad I made the time on my second. It does not take long to see the finds, but it shows the quality and skill of the craftsmen from 3000 years ago. Some of the pieces are replicas, but its worth seeing them especially if you won't be able to see the originals in Athens.

We spent about 40 minutes in the museum. There is a large collection of artifacts including Jewelry, weapons, tools, and pottery. I was struck by the detail of the dolls with articulating arms and legs.
