The Archaeological Museum of Delphi, one of the most important in Greece, presents the history of the famous Delphic sanctuary and the most famous oracle of the ancient Greek world. Its rich collections include mainly architectural sculptures, statues and works of micro-art, dedications of the faithful to the sanctuary, which reflect its religious-political and artistic activity throughout its historical course, from the foundation of the Apollonian mosque in the 8th century BC until its decline in the years of late antiquity.

It has a workshop for the conservation of ceramic and metal objects, as well as a mosaic restoration workshop. After the last renovation of the building, reception and service areas, a canteen and a shop were created. The Museum, which is supervised by the 1st Ephorate of Prehistoric and Classical Antiquities, was renovated in 2004. The visitor can admire famous works such as Hiniochus, the Sphinx of Naxians, the Kouroi Cleobis and Vito, the Omphalos. etc.
