The Delphi Archaeological Museum is one of the most important museums in Greece. It operates under the authority of the 10th department of Prehistoric and Classical Antiquities and presents the history of the Delphi sanctuary, the most famous ancient Greek oracle.
Housed in a two storey building covering an area of 2,270 sq.m, it has 14 exhibition halls and 558 sq.m of storage rooms and maintenance workshops for ceramics, metal objects, and mosaics. The rich collection comprises mainly of architectural sculptures, statues and miniatures, which were used as offerings at the shrine. Through these, you can see the religious, political and artistic beliefs and activities of the oracle from the late 8th century BC until its decline in the Late Antiquity.
The shop and the cafe in the lobby were added to the museum after the last renovation.
