Polygyros Archaeological Museum (Αρχαιολογικό Μουσείο Πολυγύρου) is the largest museum in Halkidiki and houses archeological finds from sites around the peninsula, including ancient Stageira, Aphytos, Ierissos, Olynthos, Pyrgadikia, Sane, Stratoni and Toroni. Exhibits illustrate human occupation of the area through the Palaeolithic, Neolithic, Geometric, Archaic, Classical, Hellenistic and Roman periods.

Although no details of the renovation plans appear to have been published, it looks like a large extension to the museum is being built. Likewise, there is as yet no information available about exactly when the new museum extension will be completed or opened.

The renovation was scheduled to be completed by the end of 2013, but it now appears that the reopening of the museum has been suspended indefinitely due to lack of funds.

We look forward to visiting the museum again soon, and bringing you more photos and information, hopefully from the inside.

If you have any further information about this museum
or when it will be reopening, please get in contact.
