Description

Archaeological Museum of Thera

The Archaeological Museum of Thera is located at Fira, next to the furnicular and is now housed in a 1960s building, since its former home was destroyed by the 1956 earthquake.

The museum's exhibits cover a significant part of the island's history, although several important findings were transported to Athens and are now exhibited in the National Archaeological Museum.

Among the most important exhibits is the large volcanic stone which, according to the inscription on it, was lifted by the athlete Evmastas.

Another iconic exhibit that stands out is the Therean amphora with the geometric decoration, which was found in the cemetery of Ancient Thera and dates back to the early 7th century BC.
