Archaeological Museum

You have come to relax and you are bored walking around the corridors of the museums. We understand you. A good starting point is to go to Syntagma Square and just before picking a place to enjoy a nice coffee, to observe the Archaeological Museum from the outside; this amazing stone-built Venetian three-storey building dated from 1713. It may intrigue you, and you might end up sacrificing your morning coffee for a useful glimpse on the history of the place. Here you will admire remarkable collections with historical exhibits from the Prehistoric and the Mycenaean Periods, coming from Mycenae, Ancient Tiryns, Ancient Assini and other areas.

Worth to see
The bronze armor of the 14th century found in a chambered tomb of "Dendra", the Mycenaean figurine of the 12th century "Archon (Lord) of Assini" and historical exhibits of Argolis on the second floor.
