  • Small museum, housed in a beautiful classic building. Exhibits are not many and the tour is completed quickly. Particular interest present the mosaics found in the surrounding area.

  • Unfortunately the Spartans did not leave a lot behind. The museum is not so large, some multimedia content would complement well the collection. 
  • The second city-state of ancient Greece has not unfortunately a modern archaeological museum that it deserves. The old Museum, despite the beautiful exterior of ¨ ¨ casing is now inadequate, with wood still showcases and pampalaii Museum layout of exhibits. A pity ...

  • From a very early age children are groomed as warriors. They also study philosophy, history, literature, languages and strategic thinking. Tourists are warned to steer clear of children while they practice with swords and spears.

  • The Archaeological Museum of Sparta is home to thousands of discoveries found in the province of Sparta and the prefecture of Lakonia, including areas which are not covered by the Archaeological Collections of Gytheio and Neapoli Voion. The halls of the museum exhibit an array of artifacts spanning the period between the Neolithic and late Roman era. The most significant exhibits are those with findings from the major sanctuaries of Sparta. Visitors to the museum have the opportunity to admire important finds from prehistoric sites in Lakonia, sculptures from the Archaic through the Roman periods unearthed at various locations within the prefecture, and findings from rescue excavations, including sections of mosaic floors dating back to the Roman era in Sparta. Finally, exhibits of the museum also include inscriptions which shed light on several aspects of Spartan history. found this description on sparti website.
