ARCHAEOLOGICAL MUSEUM
Ios archaeological museum is located in Chora (town) and roofed under a grandiose neoclassic building, Amiradikio Edifice.
The first archaeological collection was created in 1904 in Ios by Fragouli Kortesi. In the beginnings of the 1980-decade when excavations started, the need for a museum was obvious. The Archaeological museum of Ios was built then. It exhibits all the important findings that help us unravel the island's history.
In its four rooms the visitor can see equal thematic units.
Room 1 hosts Ios' natural environment and the history of the archaeological research. The rest room has findings from the protocycladic period. You will have the chance to see findings from excavations in Skarko's settlement and get information about the social system and the structural shape of this significant ancient town. From these exhibits distinguish the ceramic utensils, the small statues, the tools and the animal bones.
In room 2 is shown the island's history during the Middle and Later Copper period. The exhibits are coming mostly from excavations in Skarkos' cemetery. Rooms 3 and 4 host findings from historic times. They belong to Archaic times and Post Antiquity. These findings are from Ios' ancient town. Among them distinguish the collections with inscriptions and sepulchral steles.
The museum apart from regular exhibits hosts periodical too.
