Pythagorion Archaeological Museum


Location: Pythagorion   

The Archaeological Museum of Pythagorion in Samos, Eastern Aegean: In the past, the Archaeological Museum of Pythagorion was housed in the Town Hall of Pythagorion, but in May 2010 a new building was inaugurated. This new building is located in the city centre of Pythagorion and next to the site of the ancient town of Samos.

The Archaeological Museum of Pythagorion houses about 3,000 items that were found in excavations in the ancient town of Samos and in other excavations around the island. These exhibits show the historical course of the island from the 5th millennium B.C. till the 7th century A.D. and depict the political importance of Samos in the ancient times.

The exhibits of the museum includes marble statues, coins, parts of buildings and temples, ceramic vases, jewelry and other items that show the cultural development of the island and its connection to the towns in mainland Greece and Asia Minor.
