The Greek Ministry of Culture announced that the much anticipated refurbishment of part of the Archaeological Museum of Ancient Corinth is now complete and will be inaugurated next week during an official ceremony by Minister Aristidis Baltas.

The refurbishments which commenced in 2012 were an initiative by the Ephorate of Prehistoric and Classical Antiquities in an attempt to modernise the museum’s infrastructure both in terms of exhibition spaces and visitor rooms.

The museum is located in the centre of ancient Corinth’s archaeological site and is considered one of the most historical museums in the Greek periphery attracting over 100,000 visitors annually.

The museum was built in 1931-1932 based on the architectural places of American architect, W. Stuart-Thompson (1890-1968) on the initiative of the American School of Classical Studies.
