This is one of many similar museums in Greece. A great range of local artefacts displayed in a non chronological and non thematic manner. Much priceless material

Interesting museum where you will find out about the local ancient history of Sparta. Only 1€ entrance fee, it is a good idea to check it out.

There is a lot of statues and pottery. Their priced possession is the statue of Leonidas from ancient times. It depicts a smiling Hoplite. Support the local museum and go see it.

I eventually found the museum and it was set in lovely gardens strewn with bits of statues. Inside was the famous statue of the helmeted Spartan. The surprise was some interesting mosaics.

Although small, it's full of artefacts. It cost 2 Euro to get in and worth a visit! Freindly and helpful staff, although you language was a bit of a barrier, well worth a visit. It was easy to find as it was well signposted.

Beautiful setting in a classic Greek revival building, this small museum has a limited collection, but is well worth a visit as it offers some interesting background on the Spartan culture. An, of course, it houses the famous bust of Leonidas, which alone is worth...More

I think the museum has a statue, but I am not sure if so, or where it is. There is a life-size statue of Lycurgus on Odos Lycurgus [the road leading to Mistra] in front of the cathedral, & facing the Lida/Dioskouri hotels... More
