The Archaeological Museum of Nicopolis  *NEW*

The Archeological Museum of Nicopolis lies just beyond the archaeological site bearing the same name, at the entrance to the city of Preveza on the Preveza-Ioannina national road. It opened its doors in 2010 and is worth while a visit.

The exhibit rooms
The exhibits reflect all the dimensions of the human presence and activity during the long-lasting existence of the city in both Roman and Early Christian times. Special emphasis lies on the important position of the city between two empires and two capitals and its evolution through time, as it becomes evident from the civic and private life.
The first room is dedicated to the founding and evolution of the city over time (founding, infrastructure, civic life, cults), and its gradual transition into the Early Christian city with its powerful fortification, the impressive basilicas and the intense Christian life. In the second room, on the other hand, emphasis is laid on the daily life of the inhabitants, as this is traced through their occupations and activities (trade, shipping, workshops), and their habits and perceptions of death. In order to provide the highest possible degree of comprehensive information to the visitor, apart from the aforementioned rooms, corridors as well as the outer, open-air and semi-sheltered spaces of the museum will be used to exhibit the decline, the depopulation and the final abandonment of the city, but also the re-discovery and re-organization of this place into a visitable archaeological site.
After completion of the antiquities exhibition, the 33rd Ephorate of Prehistoric and Classic Antiquities aims at connecting the Museum to both the routes’ network of the archeological site of Nicopolis and the daily cultural life of the city and the modern cultural activities, thus setting off its actual educational role, by also implementing suitable educational programs.
