Odessa Archaeological Museum - Review
Established in 1825 this is the oldest archaeological Museum in the country. The building you see today was completed in 1883. Focusing its activities on expositions, research, and restoration, the museum has amassed a collection of 160000 archaeological artefacts from around the Black Sea region. It has a lovely collection of coins, with 50000 exhibits from antiquity including Greece, Rome, Byzantine, Kievan Rus and the Romanovs. The museum also has a rich Greek and Cypriote art collection. But the best and largest collection is probably the prehistoric exhibit from the dawn of man to the second millennium BC. It also has one of the finest collections of Egyptian Antiquities in the world.
In the square outside the museum you will find the Statue of Laocoon. This is only a replica of the more famous statue kept in public display at the Vatican, but it is nevertheless beautiful.

Odessa Archaeological Museum, Odessa Reviews
An underrated attraction in Odesa, the archaeological museum is a real treasure. The museums features artifacts from the days when the region was a Greek colony (8th century BC), mummies from Egypt and Scythian finds. The small gold treasury room is impressive. A must visit for any historian of the ancient world.
Rather old-fashioned but interesting museum
Was very interesting, have to pay extra to take pictures.
It is a very interesting museum. In it's collection you'll find many historic artifacts. It is one of the oldest museums in Odessa and one of must visit places. Located at the beginning of Pushkinskaya street near Primorskii boulevard. One of the quiet places in the city.
Nice exhibits but lighting and interior need help. More English translation of item descriptions would be great help.
