The plans for the construction of a new museum on the island of Delos were approved by the Central Archeological Council, after the funds for the plans were collected.
According to the plans, the new museum will have to adhere to strict bio-climatic architectural standards and must be situated as far away as possible from the sea, in order to better protect the antiquities and the museum itself from the elements.
The new museum will occupy a space of at least 5,000 square meters and will feature all of the exhibits displayed in the existing museum, along with many other artifacts located on the island’s archeological sites and in storage.
The funds for the construction plans were donated by the London-based International Foundation for Greece.
