The Archaeological Museum of Thera lies in the center of Fira, the capital of Santorini. A significant part of the exhibits comes from the excavations carried out on Mesa Vouno Mountain where a settlement of the Hellenistic Period was discovered. The majority of them was found in the cemetery of Ancient Thera and includes ceramic objects, pots, amphorae as well as ancient statues, like the representative nude male statue called kouros. The rest of the finds can be admired in the National Archaeological Museum in Athens. It is recommended that visitors visit both the archaeological site of Ancient Thera and then the Archaeological Museum in order to gain an understanding on the history and evolution of the island.

An extraordinary and very interesting museum lies in the center of Fira, the capital of Santorini, very close to the cable car. The Archaeological Museum of Thera is a very educational small gem that offers an insight into the island’s past and proves how sophisticated the civilizations that preceded us were. The Archaeological Museum is a great place for those who are interested in other cultures and wish to become acquainted with the history of Santorini. There are three main collections on display ‒ sculpture from the Archaic to the Roman Period, inscriptions dating from the Archaic to the Roman Period as well as vases and clay figurines from the Geometric to the Hellenistic Periods.

The Hall of Thera attracts the visitor mainly with the famous murals, that of Spring with the swallows and the lilies, of the young boxers and the antelopes. The exquisite sketches with the figurative representations of lions, dolphins and birds also inspire their themes from the great painting. The volcanic destruction of the settlement saved in eternity unique items, such as the "imprints" of the wooden bed, where even the traces of the ropes that fastened the mattress can be seen in the plaster cast. The inscribed amphorae with points of the Minoan Linear A script and the lead weights that follow the metric system of Minoan Crete, offer information including the commercial contacts and the administrative organization of the settlement while the clay tripod pots or the base of a clay vessel with snails inside they offer a sneak peek at the Thera woman's kitchen. Selected works from Mycenaean Greece, the palace of Knossos and the Prison of Milos briefly present the wider world of the Aegean in which Thira held a prominent position before the eruption of the volcano.

The Archaeological Museum of Thera is a very educational small gem that offers an insight into the island’s past and proves how sophisticated the civilizations that preceded us were. It was built in 1960 by the Ministry of Public Works since the previous one, constructed in 1902, had collapsed during the destructive earthquake of 1956.
