I found that the best way to reach the museum was by first heading to the Zea Marina before continuing along the harbour's western side. You will see a kiosk around 300 metres along and then turn right. You should be directly outside it then!

A not too busy hidden gem
We couldn't believe we found the Archaeological Museum down a small street. Even more surprising is that there were no aggressive panhandlers trying to bully into us into purchasing their wares. Informative staff working there but I could have perhaps found a better route as we took sometime wondering around aimlessly before we stumbled upon it.

Re. Learn more on how the athletics and sports started
The opening times are confusing but they are Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday 10:00 - 18:00, Sunday 10:00 to 16:00 and Wednesday 12:00 - 20:00. Note that if Olympiacos is playing though, the museum must close two hours before match kick-off.

Learn more on how the athletics and sports started
We were told at school of how the Ancient Greeks started athletics and then the Olympics. The Museum of Olympiacos is definitely the place to learn more about this pivotal development in history. Check the opening times though as some have complained about it being completely closed when they turned up. Easy to find in the Olympiacos stadium.

Small but great
Being right next to a harbour in a city that has been around for thousands of years, you would expect there to be a lot of water-based history in Piraeus. This is where the Nautical Museum steps in and fills in the blanks while taking you through the ages.
