Ionian museums

The IoniInformation about the Museums in Ionian islands, in Greece but also information about museums in many islands of the group: an islands share a similar history and culture, obviously affected by the long Venetian occupation of the islands from the Medieval times and the British occupation till 1864, when they were gifted to Greece.

This occupation not only affected the daily language, architecture and traditions, but also all aspects of life, as can be seen in the folklore and ecclesiastical museums of the islands. In fact, the Ecclesiastical Museum of Zakynthos and the Byzantine Museum of Corfu house very valuable items dating from the 12th century.

Particularly interesting are also the archaeological museums, such as the Archaeological Museums of Corfu and Kefalonia, that house findings from excavations around the islands that show the continuous life course there since the prehistoric times.
