Museum Of Prehistoric Thira - Review
The Museum of Prehistoric Thira is a definite visit while in Santorini. This popular museum is one of the many that beautifully illustrate the history of the ancient and mysterious land of Greece but this one is perhaps one of the most interesting and the best in the region.
A wide variety of artefacts from the excavation at sites like Akrotiri and the surrounding areas can be found here. The section on Wall paintings is simply fascinating while the marble figurines and the neolithic artefacts are astonishing to see.
This place is an ideal start to your tour of Santorini. Located in the area called Fira, this museum will be the perfect background to your sightseeing tour of Santorini.

Museum Of Prehistoric Thira, Santorini Reviews
The content in the museum is quite interesting. I am giving one star because the tickets description is misleading. You pay 14 euro for "all" museums for four days ticket but then you cannot enter all museums. A lot of museums are private and not included. Before buying ask for the list of the museums the ticket is valid for and ask which ones are closed. I ended up paying 28 euros for two people and could visit only this museum in the city. The other museum we could enter was closed for maintenance. You need the car if you want to visit other museums outside the city because they are far away.
Edit: in regards to the total ticket - see bottom. Great little museum showing artifacts from the island. A lot of history explaining the formation of the island from over 4000 years ago. Very informative and if you get the total ticket you can visit the other museums on the island including the ruins at Akrotiri all on the same ticket which is valid for 4 days. Recommended if you are interested in the islands history. Total ticket - The museums are located all over the island, they are easily accessible by bus for €1.80 each, about 30 mins away max and the bus station is literally opposite the museum. Not sure why there are negative reviews for the ticket when all say the attraction was great.
The display is fine. But the 4-day ticket is nonsense. Because not ALL museums are included. A lot of are closed and private museums not included. And you usually need to drive far to reach another museum.
Great Place, just be sure you buy the 14 euro deal, you will have 5 museums with one ticket, very worth Loved each item in this museum
This place has some bad reviews. Not sure why. Wonderful artifacts from Akrotiri here including fab frescoes. The pottery and objects of daily life were remarkable. The lives of inhabitants who apparently thought they’d be coming back after the event.
