Boeotia

The gate of Thebes

To visit the new Archaeological Museum of Thebes is to travel through time, space and myth. The journey is much longer and the experience much greater than the one-hour drive from Athens would suggest. This is not only because of the museum and its great exhibition ranging from Boeotia's prehistory right up to the establishment of the modern Greek state.
