The Archaeological Museum of Sami houses many important discoveries, making it one of the most significant sites in Kefalonia.

During the Classical period, Sami flourished as a city-state and held sway over the eastern part of the island. The city even minted its own bronze and silver coins, bearing the city’s monogram.
