The Archaeological Museum of Nauplion was erected in 1713, by the Venetian Providor Sagredos, during the second Venetian occupation of the area, in order to become the arsenal of the Venetian fleet. The exhibition is housed on the first and second floors while the ground floor is occupied by the offices of the 4th Ephorate of Prehistoric and Classical Antiquities. In the future, the offices will be tranferred to another building in the vicinity, and the ground floor of the museum will house temporary exhibitions organized by the Ephorate.
