A true gem of the island, this museum is housed in the former junior high school of Ikaria’s capital. The building itself is impressive, as an excellent example of neoclassical architecture dating back to 1925 and featuring unique pediments and a large, marble staircase leading to the main entrance and front yard of the building. Inside, the museum contains over 200 artifacts which have been unearthed throughout the island and the waters surrounding Ikaria. Visitors have the opportunity to see pottery, columns, stone and bronze tools, well-preserved amphoras, pedestals, pillars, clay wares, weapons and other personal objects. The most important of these is the funerary sculpture of Katafygi, a work of an artist from Paros dating back to the Archaic/Early Classical period.
