    Here, the treasures of the local excavations are exhibited, well presented and explained. Those who are interested in the history and the roots of Samos, should have been here. Worth seeing alone the Koren.

    Did not expect that the Museum shows such broad exposure. Remained in awe of the impressions about the history of Samos. Once again saw how the history of each individual island. Two buildings in the Museum-the old and the new, which mainly represented the original exhibits from the Temple of Hera. The exposition of the old building is too vast for such premises. Such a great collection would be enough for several buildings. From negative-the big problem with parking. As a recommendation-try to climb a couple of streets above, there could put the car without any problems.

    A must visit. A huge number of artefacts that you won't be able to see anywhere else. The huge statue of Kouros is famous the world over.
