Interesting that priceless coleection of this museum were hidden underground during World War II, and when I visited the museum I undertood why.
Absolutely unique and huge collection from ancient world!
Here I could easily recognize vases and sculptures which all art students must know.
Dypylon Amphora from geometric period; Kouros statues; Youth of Antikythira from Hellenistic period and so on.
I spent about 5 hours there and could stay longer if they would not close the museum. If you are really interested, be there as early as possible.
Also the museum has very nice cafe with interesting interior on a first level.
