Comments Off on Come See the Archaeological Museum of Messenia In Kalamata
The Peloponnese peninsula in southern Greece is home to several famous archeological sites, but it is also home to the city of Kalamata, the second most-populated city on the peninsula.
Speaking of famous archeological sites on the Peloponnese peninsula, the city of Kalamata is where you will be able to find one of the best archeological museums in all of Greece. The Archaeological Museum of Messenia has gotten excellent reviews over the years for many reasons. First and foremost, enough cannot be said about how much information is here, and the fashion in which it is presented is phenomenal.
The museum has panels for every exhibit, which are detailed in both Greek and English, for the many tourists who find themselves wandering the halls of the Archaeological Museum of Messenia. There are plenty of statues and pieces of pottery from ancient times that are still in excellent condition. One of the really cool features about the Archaeological Museum of Messenia is that for the ancient statues that have essentially become puzzle pieces over time, the museum mounts the pieces against the wall, and then fills in the gaps through imagery so that the visitors can see what the statues would look like had they not been destroyed over many, many years.
