Museum of Prehistoric Thira

The Museum of Prehistoric Thira, having as a point of reference the Prehistoric settlement of Akrotiri, presents the life and culture of Thira during the Prehistoric period as depicted through a variety of exhibits, mainly clay vessels and frescoes of fine art, representing the illustrious Cycladic civilization that flourished on the island. The exhibition “Thera wall paintings. The masterpieces of the Aegean Prehistory” was inaugurated in August 2021 at the second floor of the museum where for the first time, wall paintings of Thira are presented according to their iconographic programs, i.e. the way they were unfolded in the buildings’ rooms of the prehistoric settlement where they were found.
