The big attractions here are, of course, the mosaic floors that were found in Mytilene homes. They are just gorgeous. The amount of detail in them is wonderful and we enjoyed the photos documenting just how the mosaics were removed from their original locations and...More

The best exhibits are mosaic floors from two ancient Mytilene villas. The statuary is mostly partial and not nearly as interesting. Their temporary exhibits seem to be interesting in general, I missed the Gastronomy in Antiquity but was able to enjoy Lesvian ceramics through the...More

The small museum costs 4 Euro and well worth it, several rooms with mosaics from Mytilene of exceptional quality. Several small sculptures and small beads and some pottery, but the reason for the visit are the mosaics.
