Museums in Kythira
While you are in Kythira, it is essential to visit the few museums dedicated to the historic past of this island. The most important museum of Kythira is the Archeological Museum where you can view a unique collection of findings from the Minoan and Paleolithic period. It includes pottery, ceramics, archaic items, and sculptures from the Classical period.
Equally interesting is the Byzantine Museum of Kythira which is housed in the church of Analipsi, in the village of Livadi. The museum offers a rare collection of Byzantine icons and paintings as well as fragments of an important early floor mosaic and ruins from the church of Agios Ioannis Potamos.
