About
Nicopolis is an ancient city that was built on 31 B.C by Octavios after the batle of Aktio. If you translate it from Greek to English Nicopolis, means the city of victory. It is placed just outside the town of Preveza. It is great for someone that is interested in ancient history to visit that place. Also the museum that they recently built near the ancient city of Nicopolis is one of the most moderate and intresting musuems in Greece.

    An interesting museum based on the Nicopolis and Preveza area
    Very well structured and well laid out museum tour, would have been good to see a little more information on the naval battle or information on the ships. Lots of stone and marble relics and artefacts. Staff very helpful and friendly. We walked from Preveza town and back, a total of 10pms A visit worth an hour or so

    The museum covered the history of the area for more than 2000 years, the majority of the exhibits caming from ancient times. The exhibits were well presented and explained and our local guide supplemented this information and gave us knowledge for the sites that we visited next. While looking small outside, we zigzagged through galleries making it large for a local museum

Google searched the site for opening times (8 till 8). Arrived to be told that the museum and the archaeological site were closed with no explanation as to why. Very dissatisfied

This is a fairly unassuming building that you could easily miss from the highway, but it is definitely worth a stop, as it contains a treasure trove of Greek antiquities and tells the story of Ancient Nicopolis in a really interesting and interactive way…even my 11 year old was impressed!!

The site of Ancient Nicopolis has a few parts spread out along the road. It is an active dig and is practically closed to visitors. We just asked the archaeologists for a permission to wander around.

This Museum is well worth a visit, the entry is covered by the fee payed to enter the site itself which is situated a few KM further up the road. I do hope the excavations continue and that other parts of the Ancient city will be open regularly to the public sometime in the future.
The person at the front desk of the Museum was very informative and helpful.
