The Byzantine Art Museum, sometimes also simply known as Zakynthos Museum is found at the north western end of Solomos square which is in the capital Zakynthos Town
so easy to visit as part of a day trip or longer stay in the main town.
There’s no denying the considerable influence the Byzantine Empire had on the Mediterranean, including Greece and Zakynthos. Learn a little more about this period of history at the Byzantine Art Museum.
Journey through wood-carved icons and frescoes from the 15th, 16th, and 17th centuries before moving on to 18th century paintings by Greek masters like Kantouni, Doxaras, and Koutouzis.
The exhibitions include several artefacts from around the island that have been saved since the 1953 earthquake plus a huge model of Zakynthos town as it was before the earthquake.
The entrance fee is just 4€ so well worth it, just check that it’s all open and will be open for long enough for you to enjoy the whole site as there are sometimes odd opening times or parts of the museum closed off.
