If you are interested in ancient cultures you must definitely see it. Besides the enormously tall Kouros you'll be able to observe the neigbouring cultures' life style. The island is not all about beaches and famous mathematician, just for 3 € the museum complex offers...More

One should visit this important museum and be amazed from the kouros of Samos. It is an enormous statue. The museum is in the centre of the city next to the town hall and the great church of Sant Spiridon.

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

We have visited the archaelogical museum in Vathy : so interesting and many objects and presents from Herai temple. Very impressive, and moving, all these statues and art things are so ancient. One of the best museum I've ever seen !!

I prefer small, cosy museums like this. It only cost €3 to get in and there was so much to see. The kouroi were awesome - some were huge. Next stop was the Temple of Hera where they came from. A highlight of Samos.

Island museums can sometimes be a bit hit and miss but Samos Town's archaeological museums are definitely better than many. The Samos Kouros is the star although some of the exhibits in the old building are also impressive.
