The Archaeological Museum is located in the central part of Santorini.
The first museum was built in 1902, but due to the devastating earthquake that occurred in 1956, it was completely destroyed. In 1960, the Ministry of Public Works built a new museum.
Today, the Archaeological Museum exhibits finds from excavations carried out in Mesa Vuno and Akrotiri. There is also a collection of ancient figurines found in local pumice mines.
One of the halls displays picturesque frescoes, which, according to scientists, are considered surviving works of art of Atlantis.
In the museum there are also exhibits from various eras, including the Archaic and Roman periods. In addition to this, you can also see figurines, sculptures, vases, amphorae, etc.
