Visiting the Archaeological Museum with a Toddler

In comparison with Acrocorinth, it is much easier to navigate the Archeological Museum of Ancient Corinth with a stroller. Having a toddler with you for your visit should not pose any problems. The only place where we found an obstacle was at the exit, where there was first a stair to get down in the valley and then one to get back up again to the exit gates. Other than those obstacles that required us to lift the stroller, it was easy to walk around. It might, however, not be a site where you will let your kid run free.

  1. I always love to visit the ruins. It gives me sensation that I can’t describe by words. While walking through the alleys, I love to imagine how people lived in those eras, how they interacted each other. Market is always being my favorite place, since I imagined people coming from everywhere to trade and share the news..
