Island museums can sometimes be a bit hit and miss but Samos Town's archaeological museums are definitely better than many. The Samos Kouros is the star although some of the exhibits in the old building are also impressive.

We were disappointed by our visit to the Heraeon but this museum displayed many objects from there in a modern way with good labelling in English & Greek. The new museum In Pythagorion should also not be missed.

Conundrums everyone must visit are in Samos town itself and Pythagorean. Both have fascinating exhibits and need at least an hour to look around.

The museum is actually two different buildings with one admission fee for both. The idea evokes the two museums devoted to classical art in Munich, Germany, because German archaeologists have been extremely active at the site of the Temple of Hera here on the island from which most of the finds in both of these museums derive. The newer of... More

We have been to this museum every time we visit Samos, 6 times now. It is a fantastic place in terms of size and content. The last time we visited was 2012 but the drop down menu only allows me to say during 2014 or 2015 which is a little daft. If should allow you to answer pre this current... More

A great collection of artefacts - the museum not too large which is great as some museums are just too much to take in

Many nice pics and the important great statue are worth to see. There are two buildings. The buildings have a history which you can read it at the museum. One of them is full of statues and the other is full of ancient things from the civilizations lived in Samos.

So many things inside of this museum, everything from big sculptures to little figurines to pretty vases and amphoras. You will not be disappointed if you are interested in the archaic period, or items from Egypt, Cyprus and Persia. Definitely worth a visit. There is a beautiful park just outside where you can enjoy a coffee or just sit on... More
