Sparta’s old-style archaeological museum hosts artefacts from Sparta’s illustrious past, many unlabelled and most without any protective covering. You may spot a votive sickle of the kind that Spartan boys dedicated to Artemis Orthia, reliefs featuring Helen and Menelaus (and Helen with Paris), bronze and lead votive figurines, heads and torsos of various deities, a statue thought to be King Leonidas, votive terracotta masks and grave stelae. Fine mosaics from Hellenistic and Roman Sparta are also on show.
