The Archaeological Museum of Corfu located in main town was built between 1962 and 1965. The museum is donated by the town of Corfu. Its initial purpose was to house the archaeological finds from the Temple of Artemis.  In 1994 it was expanded with the addition of two more exhibit halls that display the more recent finds at the ancient citadel of Corfu.
The museum houses findings dating from the Prehistoric to the Hellenistic times. The collection consists of bronze and marble statues, funeral offerings, ancient coins, clay pottery, golden jewelry and parts of ancient temples.
