The rewards for this physical effort will be a visit to a local winery and lunch in a taverna. More details will be forthcoming in March. So save the date!
|Early view of the prehistoric collection in 1912|
As one enters the National Museum, in the central corridor is one of the jewels of the Museum, the world famous Prehistoric Collection. This collection was founded in 1891 to display the “prehellenic art” of Greece. Until the creation of a network of museums throughout the country, where new finds would be displayed close to their places of discovery, the National Museum was the repository of all prehistoric finds. Over the years the Prehistoric Collection has had an interesting history.
