Ca: Den förhistoriska museum Santorinis eller Thera som öppnades 2000 har flera fresker och fynden från antikens Akrotiri tillsammans med många föremål som importerats från Kreta och nordöstra Egeiska öarna. Några av de krukor på displayen – cups jugs and pithoi – are delicately painted with motifs familiar from the wall paintings. Note the fresco fragments with the painted swallows who flocked here because they loved the cliffs and the women in Minoan dresses. Fossilized olive leaves from 60 000 BC prove the olive to be indigenous. The museum is housed in the uppermost floor of a building constructed in 1983. Access to the exhibition space is on this same level up the very steep street that surrounds the building. It has been designed as a solution adapted to the existing building a shell inside a shell with its own autonomous personality. Thus solved the problems created by the windows all around the outside walls and the doors into the atrium the cross-vaulted ceilings morphologically incompatible with the content and style and unsuitable for acoustic reasons. The exhibition presents for the first time the developments on prehistoric Thera from the Neolithic Age until the 17th century BC.
