At the request of the museum, the ceremonial meeting to celebrate the 190th anniversary of the museum will take place from 14:00 till 18:0 November 24, 2015 at the Branch of the Hellenic Foundation for Culture in Odessa (provulok Krasny, 20).

We cordially congratulate the team of staff of the Archaeological museum Odessa, one of the oldest museums in Ukraine, with this significant date, the 190th anniversary of the founding of the museum and wish them fruitful research and new discoveries, new findings during archaeological fieldworks to replenish the museum collection and renew its exhibitions.
We thank the museum staff for the long standing and fruitful collaboration with the   Branch of the Hellenic Foundation for Culture in Odessa which over these years have resulted in a number of interesting events, and we are certain that our most interesting joint projects are yet to come.
We are proud that important contributions to the foundation and further development of the museum have been done by people from Greece and Cyprus: in early periods these were Greek members of the Odessa Society for History and Antiquities, and nowadays they include, among others, Professor Vassos Karageorghis and the Foundation Anastasios G. Leventis.
We wish the museum staff many years of good health, peace, happiness and success to arrive with new achievements at the celebration of the 200th anniversary of the museum.
