The unique Museum of Prehistoric Thera can be considered an extension of Akrotiri's archaeological site, since it houses the frescoes and artifacts of this ancient great urban center that flourished during the 17th century BC.
You will find it in Fira, just a few minutes from the parking lot at the city's entrance.
Its premises outline Thera's history during prehistoric times through selected findings from the thousands that are in storage. Through the tour, you will discover the dynamic and creative history that made the southernmost island of the Cyclades one of the most important centers of the Aegean in the 18th and 17th century BC.
Moreover, on exhibition are findings from many other archaeological sites of Thera dating from the 5th millennium BC (late neolithic era) to the 17th century BC, which demonstrate the passing of the diverse cultures from the Aegean Sea in a long period of prehistory.
Noteworthy is the fact that all the exhibits have been kept in excellent condition.
