THE NEMEA ARCHAEOLOGICAL MUSEUM

 

The Nemea Archaeological Museum is an important one in the Peloponnese, the area of Greece where we work.

It is on the site of the ancient Temple of Zeus.

This Museum was built in the 1970s. It is an excellent Museum to work in because it has a lot of space for working and storing objects. There are many storerooms and a lab, where we can study all the pottery.

A number of people work here, helping to maintain the Museum's collections and guard the site. The guards explain the exhibits to tourists and also keep the artifacts safe.

The Nemea Archaeological Museum is where our artifacts are stored, and sometimes we work there.

TEMPLE OF ZEUS AT NEMEA
The Temple of Zeus (the god of thunder and the king of the gods) is right behind the museum. There are workmen setting up the columns that had fallen over. If you want to learn more about this temple, click here.
