Archaeological Museum of Neapolis Voion


This impressive collection of artefacts encompasses finds from the Malea Peninsula on which Neapoli sits. It masterfully takes the visitor on an ancient coastal route, so you see statues and objects, including clay vessels and jewellery, that span from the northwest of the peninsula to the northeastern coast, including ancient inland sites.
