The Archaeological Museum of Aegina was founded in 1828 by Ioannis Kapodistrias, the first governor of the Greek State with the contribution of the historian and scholar Andreas Moustoxidis. At first, it was housed in a neoclassical building in the center of Aegina Town, but since 1980, it has been hosted in a modern building near the archaeological site of Kolona, the extant remains of the ancient temple of Apollo.

The Archaeological Museum of Aegina houses findings from all ancient sites on the island, including Kolona, the Temple of Athena Aphaia, the sanctuary of Ellanios Zeus and other sites of least importance. Visitors can see parts of ancient columns, funerary styles, old vases with interesting depictions, archaic inscriptions, and marble statues.
