  • Harbouring the Protoattic amphora (believed to originate from the 7th century and depicting the beheading of Medusa by Perseus); the Fleeing Kore (stemming from the architectural design of the Sacred House); a complete collection of pottery attributed to the Middle Helladic Era; and even a huge, headless statue of the goddess Demeter, the Archaeological Museum of Eleusis is a cultural establishment that should not be left out by any tourist. Erected in 1890 according to the plans of the German master architect Kaverau and later expanded upon by the Greek architect J. Mousis, it reaches as far back into history as 2000 BC. Oh, and did you know that it covers the ceremonies of the Eleusinian mysteries?
