Museum and site

Built in 1960, the Museum of Eretria was enlarged in 1961-62, and again renovated and extended in 1987-1991 by the Greek Archaeological Service (11th Ephorate of Antiquities) in collaboration with the Swiss School of Archaeology.
Two rooms exhibit the important finds from Eretria as well as those from Lefkandi and Amarynthos.
Several scultpures and inscriptions are displayed in the adjacent gallery and in the garden.
