The Blue Guide to Greece or the book Tomb of Agamemnon (both reviewed elsewhere) are very useful. Guides to the National Museum will likely include descriptions of finds at Mycenae.

S.E. Iakovidis, Ekdotike Athenon, 1994

This guide, part of an extensive series from Ekdotike Athenon, is a good compromise between scholarship and popular interest.

Written by an Archaeology professor, it combines a large number of pictures in a 160 slick-paper pages with a serious text describing the site or region and its history. Includes a regional map. Quality photos of the finds from Mycenae now in the national museum are included.

Price was 3,000-5,000 drachmas back in the mid-90s. I've been unable to determine if new editions have come out.   Recommended - if you can find a current edition..
