The Archaeological Museum of Kythera


Kythera Museum


The Archaeological Museum of Kythira is located at the entrance to the island's capital, Chora. The building where it is currently housed was constructed in 1911 to house the Kythirian Association, then it was donated in 1975 to the Ministry of Culture, which then was renovated in 1981 to house the findings from archaeological excavations.  

In 1991 it became an extension room and a guest room was created. 

The museum, because of damage by earthquakes in 2006, had remained closed until 2015 but now the restoration and renovation work is fully completed.


Todays museum  is based on modern museological studies, so that the visitor has direct contact with the exhibits creating a pleasant tour experience that no one should miss!


The most important exhibits are:
Pottery and stone utensils Minoan from Paleopolis. 
The archaic lion of Kythira. 
Male portrait head man rudely Roman times. 
Marble head youthful. Roman copy of a 4th century BC.
