Archeological Museum Of Kampos

Situated on a hill which was the ancient citadel of Oinoe, the first capital of Ikaria, the Kampos Archeological Museum contains over 250 finds from Ikaria. Museum items include Neolithic tools, pottery vessels, clay statuettes, columns, coins, and carved headstones. The museum is located within a courtyard that also contains the island's oldest church dating from the 12th century. The Church of St. Irene built on the site of a 4th century basilica and the columns standing on the ground are from that original church which in turn was built on the site of an ancient temple to Dionysus.

The Kambos Museum is at the archaeological site of Kambos (ancient Oinoe). It contains finds from the districts of Kambos (ancient Oinoe), Nas (temple of Artemis Tauropolos), Arethousa, Christos Rachon, Proespera, Frantato and other places. The exhibits in the museum include vases, statues, grave goods, sarcophagi, figurines and architectural members. Among the finds is an outstanding marble sarcophagus of late antiquity. It is carved with garlands, rosettes and fruit in relief and probably comes from a workshop in Asia Minor.

For admission ask in the village for Vassilis, the museum caretaker. Admission is free. Photography is prohibited.
