Athens International Airport Museum Guide

The construction of the Athens International Airport ‘Eleftherios Venizelos’ revealed a number of archaeological remains. The terminal building houses a small museum containing finds from the Neolithic to the post-Byzantine period. There is a short bilingual guide to the museum (Mesogeia Attica History & Civilisation)¬†with a plan, a map of sites from the airport zone, photographs of some sites, and descriptions of a selection of the finds. The sections include:

  • Excavations on the site of the Airport at Spata
  • Archaeological evidence from late antiquity to the Post-Byzantine period in the area of the Airport
  • The excavations at Saints Peter and Paul church area, Spata
