“Take A Walk Through Greek History”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

It's well worth taking an hour or two to browse through the history of Thassos and of Greek civilisation in general. The museum is well set out chronologically starting off in the reception area with the wonderfully imposing Kouros. They have some good old black and white photos of early French led archaeological digs and excellent examples of pottery, jewelry and lifestyle under various occupations. After the museum have a potter around the old agora excavation next door. Good value at only 2 euros.

“Worth a visit -excellent interpretation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

Small but recently revamped with excellent intrepretation in English. Well worth a visit especially if you are interested in the history and development of ancient Thasos as good guidebooks to the Island are virtually non-existent.

“A trip back in time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

Thassos museum is a must if you go into Thassos Town the cost is e2 per person children free and it is set out in such a way that you start at the earliest period and work your way round there are some wonderful artifacts the building is quite modern and air conditioned and particularly well set out, it is also in the heart of the town so there is no need for a special trip some of the statues are quite stunning particularly the one in the foyer, a great way to spend a couple of hours
