Since 1997, the Odessa Archeological Museum has functioned not only as a museum but also as an institute for scientific research into the archeology of primitive society in the Northern Black Sea region and the archeology of the Middle Ages. The museum conducts expositions, restorations and publishing activities.
The museums has a collection size of more than 160,000: archeological finds from the northern Black Sea region, the largest collection in Ukraine of Ancient Egyptian sarcophagi, stone slabs with hieroglyphics and fragments of papyrus, Ancient Greek and Ancient Roman exhibits. The museum is also famous for its collection of coins and medals. There are over 50,000 coins in the museum treasury from Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome, the Byzantine Empire, Ancient Kievan Rus and coins of the Russian Empire from the Romanovs' dynasty. A few years ago the Leventis Foundation of Cyprus funded the new Greek and Cypriote gallery at the museum; because of the large number of Greeks in Odessa in the 19th century, the museum has rich collections of material from both areas.

Follow the order of visit for a chronological understanding. In the basement: Egyptian mummies and sarcophagi that are worth a look and especially the room of jewels and coins (very beautiful numismatic collection that traces the whole history). Allow time.
Билет 70грн ,подошли к финальному залу с украшениями (из за него стоимость была именно 70)куда нас неочень вежливо не пустили мол мы обязаны пропустить экскурсию американцев(кои шли за нами)конечно ве... more »Ticket 70gn, came to the final hall with decorations (because of it the cost was exactly 70) where we were not very politely allowed to say we are obliged to miss the tour of the Americans (who followed us) of course, because the cost of the tour is many times more than our 140uah. Wife 40 minutes on chairs, tried to enter the final hall, we were not allowed .We are citizens of Ukraine, indigenous, and we spit brazenly. At the entrance, the grandmother's staff sticks books for 10 pages for 70 gn.
Interesting discovery of the different settlements in the region from the prehistory till around 1000 years AD. Plus wonderful sarcophagus from Egypt.
Rich collection of presented objects. I would recommend it also for the families.
