The new Museum at Mycenae contains finds from the Citadel and the surrounding area and reflects the history and prosperity of Mycenae from the earliest times to the Hellenistic period. Separate sections deal with each of the principal excavated areas and one part of the gallery is devoted to a display illustrating aspects of everyday live and craftsmanship in different materials. The finds of gold and other precious items from the two Shaft Graves, however, remain in the National Museum in Athens.




Among thousands of objects on display at Mycenae itself is the fine ivory lion found in the beside the altar in the Room with the Fresco
