Archaeological Museum of Vathi

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. The most famous among the numerous impressive exhibits at the museum is a giant marble statue of a kouros, or young man, unearthed at the Heraion, which is dated to the 6th century BC and stands at 5,5m high.
