The Byzantine Museum of Ioannina is housed in one of the buildings of citadel of Ioannina, the capital of the Epirus region in northwestern Greece. The central section was built in the 1960s and originally functioned as a Royal Pavilion.
The museum was opened to the public in 1995. The collection of the silver items is housed in a separate 19th-century building on the citadel, and plans are ongoing to spread the exhibition among several other buildings in the citadel. The museum contains collections of Early Christian and Byzantine sculptures, excavation finds from Arta, pottery, manuscripts and early editions of printed books, post-Byzantine icons and silver items.

  • Nice historical museum. The cost is 7 € per adult. It explains well about the city of Ioannina.
  • Nice museum in the gorgeous Old city of Ioannina
  • Beautiful byzantine museum inside the castle of the Ioannina city. There are some historical canons outside of the castle, nice spot for memorial photos.
  • Worth visiting. Free pass for kids. 2 euros for adults to visit all three museums in the area. You will need about an hour to take a look at all three museums.
  • Nice lay out and good collection.
