Museum Of Prehistoric Thira, Santorini Reviews - Write a Review

  • Beautiful art - oldest we ever saw. Good information on the walls too. Well worth the visit.

  • You can see many exhibits from prehistoric period. A must if you like the ancient history.

  • Good background on the initial civilisation of the island and its creation, tours really kill the quiet though.

  • Always a good educational piece! If you've got 15mins you can walk to centre Fira and find this historic building with a load of findings from a dig site not so far from there. Alot of what you will see is mainly pottery and the tools used, with some wall art from as early as 1800b.c.

  • This museum is excellent with really important findings. I would recommend getting a combined ticket and visiting also the ruins of the ancient city in Akrotiri.
