Zakynthos is an island rich in culture and beauty. One of the most popular museums, situated in Zakynthos Town, at the back of Solomos Square, is the Post-Byzantine museum which was built after the earthquake of 1953.
The Post Byzantine Museum houses a rich collection of various ecclesiastical items, superb carved masterpieces, post-Byzantine icons, wooden works of art, wood carvings dating from the 16th century, reconstructed frescoes and a fantastic model of Zante Town before the 1953 earthquake.

 

At the Post Byzantine Museum you glimpse the evolution of art from the post Byzantine period through to contemporary Greek art. The Byzantine museum, which was opened to the public in 1960, is spread over three floors.

Inside the Post Byzantine Museum you will also see a model of Zakynthos Town, depicting Zakynthos Town prior to its destruction from the earthquake in 1953.

In the opinion of many, this Zakynthos Museum is the richest museum of Post-Byzantine art in Greece, presenting a full spectrum of the development of Post-Byzantine and Neo-Hellenic art, including a clear outline of the influences of western art in the Ionion Islands.
