Museums in Samos
Statues, columns, sarchophagus, and beautiful pottery are just a few of the finds exhibited at the museum, located in the city centre of Pythagorion, next to the site of the ancient town of Samos.
The island’s archaelogical museum is located in the heart of the main town, and housed in two buildings: the old museum (Paschaleio archive center) and the new museum. It holds collections from various eras, but chiefly the Archaic period.

At this museum visitors can revisit the way of life of Samos residents leading up to WWII. The museum is separated into thematic units presenting the professions held in that era, professions such as those of the shepard, fisherman, cobbler, and most importantly for the island, the farmer and agricultural work.
Founded in 1994, the museum hosts items from the year 1870 until the mid 1900s that present agricultural as well as urban life in Karlovassi.

Originally a private owned winery, the museum was created in 2005 by the Union of Vinicultural Cooperatives, who in 2005 created this museum on the winery's grounds in tribute to the island's noteworthy winemaking tradition.
