Fodor's Review

In a 1912 neoclassical mansion, this island's archaeological museum displays finds from the neolithic through the Roman eras, a period of some 5,000 years. A garden in the back displays the famous 6th-century Aeolian capitals from the columns of Klopedi's temples. The museum's modern "wing" (on the corner of Noemvriou and Melinas Merkouri), contains finds from prehistoric Thermi, mosaics from Hellenistic houses, reliefs of comic scenes from the 3rd-century Roman house of Menander, and temporary exhibits.
