The Archaeological Museum of Lemnos, located near the Roman Gialos Port of Myrina, exhibits the finds in Myrina of the then 20th Ephorate of Prehistoric and Classical Antiquities, and the Italian Archaeological School of Athens in Poliochni, Hepheastion, and Kaverio. It also includes exhibits from Lemnos artifacts, donations from private collections, and antiquities from Imvros, which were preserved by the metropolitan of Imbros Joachim just before the Asia Minor disaster. The antiquities are on display in a building from the Turkocratic period which was granted to the State by the Pallimnia School Fund to house the Archaeological Museum of Lemnos. The museum opened in March 1993 and traces the origins of Lemnos from the late Neolithic period through the Roman era. The documented writings, the exhibits and explanations, maps, plans, pictures, and slides help visitors understand the importance and role of the island in historical events over the ages, primarily owing to its geographical position at the entrance to the Dardanelles.
