Directions to Piraeus Archaeological Museum

Founded in 1966 and situated in a modern building in Zarilaou Trikoupi Street, the Piraeus Archaeological Museum consists of a two-storey showroom with a warehouse and laboratories. The museum mainly displays sculptures discovered in Piraeus and the area of the Attic coast from the Bronze Age and Roman times. The museum displays objects in the divided sections of the prehistoric collection, pottery collection, bronze statues, classical gravestones, large funerary monuments, Hellenistic sculptures, Roman sculptures and a reconstruction section of a typical classical sanctuary.

The old building for the museum is currently used as storage for sculptures, whilst the new two-storey building covers an area of 1.394 m2 of exhibition space. With both buildings neighbouring the ancient classical theatre of Zeus, the theatre will become an open-air sculpture exhibition in the near future.

The museum is accessible with the Athens metro or bus lines. The museum is just a 15 minute walk from Piraeus station and a short walk from the bus station.
