Archaeological Museum of Nikopolis
The Archaeological Museum of Nikopolis is a museum in Nicopolis, in the Preveza regional unit in northwestern Greece.
Until 1940, the ‘’Archaeological Museum of Preveza – Nikopolis’’ was located in an Ottoman mosque, in the city of Preveza, Greece. In 1940, the mosque was bombed by Italian aircraft and was partially destroyed. Some of the exhibits were stolen. After the Second World War, the mosque was demolished by the Greek state. In 1965 the state built a small Archaeological Museum inside the Byzantine walls of ancient Nikopolis: 39°0′29″N 20°44′7″E. From 1998 to 2006 a new archaeological museum was built 5 km North of Preveza. In July 2009, the new Archaeological museum of Nicopolis was open to public (http://www.visit-preveza.com/museum_nikopoli ). The Nikopolis Museum is open every day from 8 am to 8pm, including Saturday and Sunday (more information on the official web-site at http://odysseus.culture.gr/h/3/eh355.jsp?obj_id=2575 ).
