Patras archaeological museum

Νέο Αρχαιολογικό Μουσείο - New Archaeological Museum

The New Archaeological Museum of Patras is focused on various archaeological finds from the Mycenaean to the Late Roman period, discovered in the region of Achaia. Although plans for the creation of the museum had been announced by the time when Melina Mercouri was Minister of Culture, its construction had not begun until 2004. Although the original plan foresaw the museum to be ready by 2006, when Patras was the European Capital of Culture, the museum was finally inaugurated on July 24, 2009. The museum was designed by architect Theofanis Bobotis. Built on an area of 28,000 square meters, with its interiors reaching 8,000 square meters, is the second largest museum in Greece. The surrounding museum space includes a pool of 500 square meters and an impressive metal dome. In the near future, it is projected the creation of a cultural park in an empty area next to the museum. The museum has four modules, three of which are permanent and the other temporary. The temporary exhibition will host several exhibitions during the year. According to archaeologists of the 6th Antiquities Dept., 70% of the exhibits see the light of day for the first time in the last thirty years. The museum receives visitors daily from 8 until 3 pm, except Mondays.
