Odessa Archaeological Museum

Odesa, Ukraine
4.4 / 14
The Odessa Archaeological Museum is a must-visit for history enthusiasts. Established in 1825, it is one of the oldest archaeological museums in Ukraine. The museum showcases a fascinating collection of artifacts, including the Zmeiniy Island and wreck Patroclus-Zmeiniy, which was discovered by the Odessa-based non-governmental organization NAVAREX in 2011. Visitors are highly recommended to see the marble statue of Demeter, a highlight of the museum. The museum offers a glimpse into the Soviet times, as the exhibits have remained unchanged for the past 40 years. While some visitors find the exterior more intriguing than the interior, the museum boasts a rich collection of objects, ranging from settlements in the region during prehistory to around 1000 years AD. One can also marvel at a wonderful sarcophagus from Egypt. It is worth noting that while the entrance fee is reasonable, taking photos inside the museum comes at an additional cost. Families are also encouraged to visit, as the museum offers an educational experience for all ages.
