A Museum honoring Nicopolis

The Archaeological Museum of Nicopolis is a thematic museum that focuses solely on artifacts unearthed from the historic structures of the ancient city bearing the same name. Its primary objective is to establish a seamless connection between the museum and the Archaeological Site of Nicopolis.

Ένα μουσείο για τη Νικόπολη

Το Αρχαιολογικό Μουσείο Νικόπολης είναι θεματικό καθώς οι εκθέσεις του περιλαμβάνουν ευρήματα αποκλειστικά από τα μνημεία της ομώνυμης πόλης της αρχαιότητας. Κεντρικός στόχος είναι η σύνδεση του με τον αρχαιολογικό χώρο της Νικόπολης.

Permanent exhibition

The permanent exhibition showcases the primary facets of the public and private existence of Nicopolis’ residents, a city emblematic of the resounding triumph achieved by its founder and the inaugural Roman emperor, Octavian, in his victory over Antony and Cleopatra during the naval battle of Actium in 31 BC.


The museum seen from a different angle

A digital exhibition showcases ancient artifacts that remain integrated within the archaeological site’s monuments, newly unearthed discoveries from ongoing excavations at Nicopolis, as well as older artifacts stored in the museum’s repositories.


Exhibit of the month

Each month, together with the friends of the museum, a specific item from the exhibition is chosen and unveiled to the wider audience. Through text, images, and video, its history is elucidated, including its discovery method, location, and date, as well as its significance, interpretation, and symbolism.


Temporary exhibitions

Open to the general public, the museum regularly hosts special exhibitions, extending an open welcome to both the local community and the broader society. These exhibitions are organized in conjunction with the Ministry of Culture’s anniversary celebrations or to present new discoveries and insights into Nicopolis life as well as the distant, yet surprisingly contemporary, world of antiquity.
