The Archaeological Museum of Lefkada is housed in the Cultural Centre in Lefkada Town. It is open for visitors since 1999 and lies close to the Open Theater and the Courthouse.
Its four rooms cover a large chronological period, from the Paleolithic times until the late Roman years.

In the first room, there are exhibits depicting the public and private life of the islanders in historical times. The findings are related to music, commerce, weaving, coinage, fishery, and farming. The second room is dedicated to the deities of Lefkada, through their presentation in coins and figurines.

The third room is dedicated to the funeral costumes of ancient Lefkada, exhibiting tomb monuments, stone urns and the representation of an ancient cemetery. The fourth room is dedicated to the memory of the famous archaeologist William Dorpfeld, who performed many excavations on the island and has been buried in Lefkada. In the last room, visitors can see items from the Paleolithic and Neolithic periods, including weaponry, vessels and various kind of tools.

Alternatively, you can book your taxi online.

Car rental: There's the option of renting a car in Lefkada and picking it up directly from Aktion Aiport (in Preveza) or your hotel. Using a rental car allows visitors to discover the Archaeological Museum and many other places of interest in Lefkada at their own pace.

Public transport: The central bus station of the island is located at Lefkada Town. There are bus connections between this station and most areas on the island. Consider that time schedules might change according to the season. Check the official timetables here.
Tip: Since buses don't always stop at every scheduled stop of their itinerary, our advice to visitors is to inform the driver about their final destination so that he makes a stop there.
