Lots of statues, pots, vases, grave goods. Large area outside of the building is currently under excavation. Whilst you cannot walk around it, you can see it from various points.

Pythagorion is now a little tourist village with some fishermen. 2500 years ago it was a bustling city of 50 000. Visit this museum to see how people lived in Samos back then and admire artifacts from their homes and temples.Very interesting.

Spent an hour in this museum, if you like ancient ruins or Greek heritage then I advise you pay a visit. Lots of interesting little bits to see, plus it's free entry.

They've clearly had a very good English-speaking archaeologist doing the labels and captions, (but some were black on purple which is not easy to read!) The place is well thought out, excellent value at 3 euros (compared with the 4 that they wanted to see...More

No air con so it gets very hot! The artifacts are ok but not that great if you've been to other museums.
