The Archaeological Museum of Mycenae
The Mycenean Civilization is the third oldest civilization in Greece. A Civilization existing more than 3000 years ago (after the Cycladic and the Minoan). The Mycenean Civilization flourished in the Bronze Age. Furthermore according to some, the Myceneans copied the “style” of the two early civilizations from potteries, frescoes down to accessories. One thing that the Myceneans were known for is their military strength.

This museum is worth some of your time. Go through the relics of a cery old civilization.
Myceane is one of the oldest (if not the oldest) civilizations in Greece. I was very impressed with the excibitions since they show a prosperus civilization and they are quite well preserved.
