In Samos (or better Vahti) I went to visit this museum. Well first of all I would like to point out that I really like to visit a good museum, but here I was a bit disappointed because I felt there were not enough information available for artefacts, exhibited in. Nevertheless there are some pretty impressive things inside so buy... More

In the center of samos you can visit a small but very intresting museum. The cost of the ticket is very low (3euro) and you can visit 2 buildings where you can find a lot of sculptures of the archaic period, pottery and a great statue of "kouros"

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
