This museum is much more modern and well-presented than the archaeological museum in Vathy. Both are of interest, but the Pythagorion is superior. You can spend up to two hours slowly perusing the finds and walking the ruins outside. The latter can quickly become hot...More

Nice place to visit as a break from sun bathing. Lots of interesting items well presented in a modern building with ruins of Samos city outside. 6 euros to get in. Open from 9am until 4pm. Closed on Mondays. Enjoy

In all of the museums I have visited in Greece over the past 8 years this museum is one of the finest. Everything about this museum is about quality—of materials and of artifacts. Throughout the museum stainless steel, thick clear plexiglass, marble and other natural...More

Perhaps no museum has the size and quality of the collections at the National Archaeological Museum in Athens. But this one is superior in interpretation of their noteworthy collections. Actually there are lots of objects of art as well as those of everyday use that...More

Relatively new, it is very organized and with very good pieces. However, be mindful of the opening time. In March, it was open from 8 to 2 pm.

If you have historic interest, don´t miss this museum in Pythagorion. Together with Archaeoligical Museum in Samos Town and The Temple of Hera this museum gives an interesting story of the old Samos-history. Samos is not only wonderful beaches and great nature

We really enjoyed this museum, although it isn't very big, it's very well organised and gives a good understanding of the history of the area. There are some beautiful artefacts on show, such as the coins, and a spectacular open-air section of buildings and mosaics...More

The museum is well equiped and the statues are impressive. There are 2 levels, and the museum is big enough. Outside you can visit ancien sites with thermes.

It cost a few Euros and was only 100m from the waterfront. I like small museums that have a single focus. This one was a small part of an ancient town where Pythagorus lived, and only took a short time to go around before a...More
