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.

  • 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.

  • It was VERY archaeological and filled with history! Now, it is very dusty and hot so if you don't mind the heat, getting your feet dusty and a lot of walking this site is for you! I feel more apart of the Greek culture after visiting the site!

  • Ok, I didn't go in...BUT, I made one trip during our stay into this overrun smelly tourist town and there was NOWHERE to park. Almost got smashed by one of the crazy motor scooter drivers illegally flying down the middle of the road. Bag it!. Then we tried again on Tuesday because the web site states it is closed on Monday. NOWHERE to park (what do people see in this place?). We parked outside of town and hoofed it in. It was CLOSED, on Tuesday! Officially the sign outside says closed on Tuesday. Don't rely on the internet. We never got to see we never will.

  • A small, but good collection of excavated ancient pottery and wall paintings from the ancient site of Akrotiri. Many of these dates back to between the 3rd millennium BC and 17th century BC. The quality of the pottery and the designs are amazing!! The famous young fisherman wall painting recovered from the site of the West House in ancient Akrotiri has been reconstructed and preserved in this museum and is worth looking at.
