Although this museum is full of interesting artifacts that are worth looking at for themselves, the museum makes even more sense if you have been to look at the archaeological site of Akrotiri first.

It was great to find this museum.. especially for the price.. a nice place to hide from the searing heat for over 30mins.. lots of interesting artifacts from thousands of years ago..
Very small, but it was perfect as it helped set the mental scene of the kind of things that would have been found at akrotiri..

This museum is about a 10min walk from the bus station..

Small museum organised into sections, housing archaelogical finds from Akrotiri. Good to visit if you have visited or plan to visit Akrotiri, to provide a bigger picture of ancient life.

We visited this museum and was amazed at the items they have here and how well preserved they are. This place is amazing. It was almost hard to comprehend the age of some of the items on display. You want to learn about History. Go Go Go is all I can say. It does not look like it is that impressive from outside, but when you enter it will blow you away.
Thank you for the great job they have done.
