The museum exhibits findings from several excavated sites across the island, from places like Paleopolis, Kanoni, Garitsa and Kassiopi.
This has expanded from its initial purpose to show archaeological finds from Corfu’s Temple of Artemis. It is located on Vraila Armeni street, on land donated by Corfu town between 1962 and 1965. The items displayed date from the Prehistoric to the Hellenistic times. Notable pieces in the museum’s collection are bronze and marble statues, clay pottery and golden jewelry. There is also the impressive Gorgona-Medusa pediment from the temple of Artemis, dating back to 585 BC. This is considered the oldest stone pediment from an ancient Greek temple.
