The museum allows visitors to admire rare exhibits from ancient and Roman times which were found in excavations in the area. The exhibits include sculptures, architectural members, sections of mosaic floors, ceramics, inscribed columns, figurines and votive clay masks. An exhibit that is definitely worth seeing is the bust of a Spartan warrior of the so-called "Leonidas".

The upgraded Archaeological Museum is designed to introduce the Greek and world public to a modern interpretation of the material culture of ancient Sparta with an emphasis on digital technologies. At the same time, it is intended to host the cultural activities and activities of the local community both in the new spaces created and in its garden and will be expected to be an important attraction for Greeks and foreign visitors who want to learn about the history and archeology of Sparta.
