Museum at Olympia was built opposite the excavation site in a valley northwest
of the Kronion hill and officially opened in 1982. Except for the central hall,
devoted solely to the pediment and metope sculpture from the Temple of Zeus at Olympia,
and the corner rooms dedicated to the games, the exhibit galleries are arranged
chronologically, proceeding clockwise from the entrance hall from prehistory,
through the Classical period, to the Roman.
