Lonely Planet review for The Museum of Prehistoric Thera
This museum houses extraordinary finds that were excavated from Akrotiri (only 5% of which has been excavated). Most impressive is the glowing gold ibex figurine, measuring around 10cm in length and dating from the 17th century BC. Many of Akrotiri's thrilling wall paintings are on display. Your ticket covers this museum and the archaeological museum.
