Museums in Samos

Samos is an island with a long history and rich culture. Since the ancient times, it was famous for the Sanctuary of Hera, the Heraion as it was called, and as the birthplace of the mathematician Pythagoras. Most findings from the Sanctuary of Heraion are hosted in the Archaeological Museum of Pythagorion, which was actually inaugurated in May 2010. Another interesting archaeological museum with findings from excavations around the island is found in Vathy, the capital of Samos.

Apart from archaeological museums, there are also museums of other types in Samos. Particularly interesting is the small, private Fossil Museum in the mountainous village of Mytilini and the Folklore Museum in Pythagorion.
