Piraeus Archaeological Museum

Greece

The Piraeus Archaeological Museum offers the visitor a complete image of the city’s history, which was marked by great sevelopment during the ancient times, both as a commercial center of the eastern Mediterranean, and also as a naval base of ancient Athens.

The collection of tombal monuments from the area of the northern cemetery of the ancient city was the center of the Piraeus Archaeological Museum’s collection. This small, but important collection, was first housed in the city’s high school, on Korai square. In 1935, the first Archaeological Museum of Piraeus was founded, situated in the small building of eclecticistic style on Filellinon str., on the northern side of Zea theatre.

The museum as it stands today, was founded in 1966 as an extension of the old one, and opened its gates to the public in 1981.
