Archaeological Museum of Sparta
History and museums
The Archaeological Museum of Sparta (Greek: Αρχαιολογικό Μουσείο Σπάρτης) is a museum in Sparta in Greece. It houses thousands of finds from the ancient Acropolis of Sparta, known as the Lakedaemonia, but also from the rest of the municipality of Laconia. The collection's pieces date from the Neolithic Age to the late Roman Period. There are seven rooms of an approximate area of 500 square metres (5,400 sq ft) which display only a small part of the collection. Administratively it belongs in 5th Ephorate of Prehistoric and Classic Antiquities.
In the museum are housed finds from excavations around the prefecture of Lakonia, provided that they are not exposed in collections of the archaeological museum Gythion or Neapolis.
