Artefacts at the Museum

The museums former chapel displays vases and amphora dating from the Mycenaean period (14th-12th century BC) and Bronze Age artefacts from 2,500 BC. The displayed commercial amphora offers an historical view of how they were developed and what they were used for.

The Coin and Jewellery Hall is in the Italian Tower and the collection here spans many centuries. Another exhibition room is specifically devoted to the tomb of a Carian princess who died between 360 and 325 BC and the museums ancient glass collection is the 4th largest in the world.
