Small, but interesting! The museum contains archaeological pieces that have been excavated in the local area. The displays are in chronological order and the intricacy of some of the items is impressive. 30 minutes was enough to digest everything on offer.

A small but interesting museum and artefacts. We had a good conversation about how some of the designs were made. Also loved the examples of gold jewellery. Worth a visit.

A small museum but some fascinating pieces. You probably only need half an hour to an hour but well worth a visit if you are in Polis. Pretty building and very cool inside so a welcome break from the heat too! 2.50 to get in,...More

It is a small museum ( only three rooms) but it definitely worths a visit! It is a good descriphion of local history. Most of the exhibits are before Christ period from the local area of Polis, i.e the ancient kingdom Marion and Arsinoe later.

This is just a small but fascinating museum to visit. An hour at most will suit most people. There are many small and a few large artefacts to see. There are small notes in each exhibit to explain dates and descriptions.

Small museum of three rooms, but well laid out. Very informative and well worth a visit. 2.50 Euros to get in, half price for old codgers like me.

Small but very nice museum! Gives you a clear view of the things that were found here during different periods. Museum is not easy to find, it's very close to the roundabout.

There are some really lovely pieces in this museum and much that is incredibly well preserved. Well worth a visit and good value at €2.50. If you're staying in Polis don't miss it.

The museum has well displayed exhibits and the exterior of the front and back of the building is wonderful. Most artifacts had only a brief explanation and most were significant due to their age but not the item itself (mostly pottery from the local area)...More
