The Archaeological Museum of Delphi, one of the most important in Greece, exhibits the history of the Delphic sanctuary, site of the most famous ancient Greek oracle. Its rich collections are comprised primarily of architectural sculpture, statues and minor objects donated to the sanctuary. These reflect its religious, political and artistic activities from its early years in the eight century BC to its decline in Late Antiquity.
The Archaeological collection of Lidorikiou was founded to present the findings of Kalliou from the Geometric to the Early Christian period. The collection comprises of findings from the excavation sites which along with the traditions and fortification walls are all that are left from this ancient town. The artifacts on display are of great significance as the ruins of the town have been covered by the Mornou Lake.
