  • If you have come to Santorini for a long week, then you must visit this museum. This will come across during your walk from the main market to the Old Cathedral.  more »
  • Although this museum is a little old fashioned and the exhibits could be shown with better light and explanation it is still very worthwhile visiting. Not only are there vases and other items from Anc...  more »
  • If you go around Fira there past and it would be a shame to miss it though is not comparable as interest in the nearby Museum "prehistoric" showing the remains of the ancient city buried by the volcano. The exhibits range in time and come from various locations on the island. Worth the ticket price.

  • Good museum for artefacts from Hiller von Gaertringen's and later excavations
  • Small museum (45 minute to see and read all). Be sure to come here before going to the site of the actual ruins to get a good historical preview. Discounted ticket packs are sold at all the historical sites to get entrance to all.
  • Nice museum with beautiful artwork from the excavations at Old Thera, the Spartan/Roman/Byzantine colony on Thera on top of the mountain from the 8th century BC to late 8th century CE.
  • Worth visit very easy to find
  • Small, but very interesting and cheap at the price. This museum takes up where the prehistoric museum ends. The classic era, that is the period of ancient thira, is presented here, whereas the time up to the bronze age, that is to say Akrotiri, is shown at the prehistoric museum near the bus station. Both are absolutely worth the time. Like all state-owned institutions in Greece, the museum closes at 4pm, so see the museum first and do your shopping afterwards.
