There are plenty artifact from the history of the region. All items have been labeled in different languages. Additionally there are many explanations about the social and political history of the region. I have loved "golden oil leaves crown"

The archaeological museum is centrally located, in the city centre, within easy reach from all parts of Kavala, reachable on foot. A very good, educational visit, with unexpected surprises in knowledge for the first timers or visitors of Kavala.

This museum contained a wealth of information about the archaeology of the region over many eras. It has been a highly strategic area throughout history.
