Description

Archaeological Museum of Pylos

The Archaeological Museum of Pylos was built in 1956 with the donation of the dentist Christos Antonopoulos; this is why it is also known as Antonopouleio. Operating since 1961, the initial aim of the museum was to house the personal collection of the French philhellene Rene Puaux.

Since then, findings from the surrounding area of Pylos, from the Middle Helladic to the Roman times have been added to its collections.

The museum is divided into two rooms with the most significant exhibits being findings (signet rings, gold objects, urns, necklaces) from the vaulted tomb of Kokounara in Paleochora, a big ankle from the Hellenistic tomb of Tragana, and many grave goods, pottery and copper utensils, as well a warrior's boar tusk helmet.
