Description

The Archaeological Museum of Thassos (tel. 25930 22180) is located in the homonymous capital of the island and it is situated near the ancient market, almost in the centre of Limenas. It is worth visiting the museum, as it is considered by many one of the most remarkable provincial museums because of the findings that are exhibited dating from the Paleolithic to the Roman era. The exterior area of the Museum is part of your tour, as it is configured in such a way that follows the Archaeological Museum.

At the Archaeological Museum of Thassos you can see unique sculpture, ceramics, miniature sculpture and coin collections dating from the 7th century BC until the 7th century AD. In the Museum you can explore the so-called “Hall of Kouros”, where you can admire the krioforos Kouros (statue of a young man) of 3.5 meters that had been created for the sacred temple of Apollo. In the next hall you will be able to watch a short film, which will be informative about the history of plastic art of the island. Finally, you can also watch a film with reference to the antiquities of Thassos.
