Chora is close to the archaeological site of Eglianos, where the kingdom of the homeric king Nestoras was. In this museum, which is one of the most important provincial museums of Greece and an «ornament» for the city, archaeogical findings from various historical eras are exhibited. In the three rooms of the museum, there are about 4000 findings from the excavations of Carl Blegen, Spyros Marinatos and lately of professor George Korre, in the areas of Pylia and Trifylia (Peristeria) which belong to the Mesohellenic (2200 - 1580 B.C) and the Late Hellenicc(Mycaenean) Era (1580-1120 B.C).
