Archaeological Museum of Aegina

The Archaeological Museum of Aegina is located at the archaeological site of Kolona. It was founded in 1829 by the first governor of the Greek state Ioannis Kapodistrias, and its three halls host important collections of ancient artifacts.

Extremely significant is the inscription referring to the ancient Temple of Aphaea as well as the collection of headstones of Kapodistrias (mainly from the island of Renia)  which was the contents of the first “National Museum” of Greece.
