A large museum covering millennia of warfare, with two particular downsides:
(1) many of the antiquity exhibits are reproductions (plaster casts) of the originals located in other museums;
(2) an entire exhibit devoted to the Polish contributions in WWII; I am not sure what this has to do with the Greek experience.
Other than that, the coverage is excellent.

Very nice

The museum is easy to access from the Metro Station Evanghelissmos. You need more time (at least 2 hrs) than I had to enjoy all the exhibitions, which are very interesting. I expected a more detailed presentation of the weapons. But it is a very nice museum, I plan to come here again.
