It may not be very big, but with very interesting displays. The whole Pythagorion appears like an archeogical site. in the museum you find all the descriptions. The artifacts found are presented in a very handsome way. The restorations are very cleverly perfomed.

Passed an interesting and pleasant hour or so here looking at the history of Samos through images found on the island. Lots of rather elegant statues and beautiful pots, glassware etc. all elegantly laid out in a cool, modern and spacious setting. A nice contrast to the heat outside!

You can't visit Samos without admiring its history. We visited museums in Pythagoria and Samos Town. Both were excellent. This is an excellent air conditioned museum with very good presentation and explanations. It was both relaxed and informative

This museum togetehr with one in Samos Town means the island is very well equipped with archaeological museums. The Pythagorio museum has some very fine Roman mosaics in a modern building.

This is new museum which presents all the recent finds from Hereion and other sites on Samos. The presentation of objects is first class with excellent explanations in both Greek and English.

A modern, well-structured museum, with comprehensive labels and a narrative line from the hellenistic to the Byzantine period of Samos. The museological design is clear and communicates perfectly the past life and history to the visitors. Very impessive - deserves a visit.

There's a lot going on in Pythagorio! The harbour is lovely, lots of nice places to eat, drink and shop! You are surrounded by some pretty awesome history, which is easy to miss! The museum provides some detail of the area and provides many items of interests. coins, pottery, statues etc. A bonus is the archaeological dig going on right... More

Lots of statues, pots, vases, grave goods. Large area outside of the building is currently under excavation. Whilst you cannot walk around it, you can see it from various points.

Pythagorion is now a little tourist village with some fishermen. 2500 years ago it was a bustling city of 50 000. Visit this museum to see how people lived in Samos back then and admire artifacts from their homes and temples.Very interesting.

This seems to me to be one of the crown jewels of Samos' archeological heritage tourism. A modern, well-designed museum, telling a clear story of the development of ancient Samos through to the Byzantine period, complete with live excavation of an artisan quarter on the plot next door to the museum, giving the whole experience a very real contextual underpinning....
