Museums in Mycenae
The Archaeological Museum of Mycenae is located at the entrance of the ancient site, close to the Lion Gate. It was completed in 2003 and it covers a spacious area that consists of three levels and only two rooms are used for the actual exhibition. The collection includes ceramic, pottery, statues, wall frescoes and jewelry pieces of excellent designs.
In one of the rooms, you can see a copy of the Golden Mask of Agamemnon, found in the Treasury of Atreus whereas the original mask is held at the Archaeological Museum of Athens. The museum presents more than 2000 exhibits from the ancient site of Mycenae and its surroundings. It is also worth mentioning that the museum is a perfect model of the ancient site of Mycenae and visitors can have a slight taste of its brilliant history or journey back in time.
