About 7500 years ago, a group of people of the time chose the southern shore of the lake to build a village with wood and clay in or very close to the lake. This Neolithic community faced the challenges of the region's ecosystem for hundreds of years, developing a wide range of activities and a special culture. The excavation research started by the team of AUTH professor Mr. G.X Hourmouziadis in 1992, brought to the surface a large number of important findings. Through the study of the findings, an attempt was made to reconstruct the image of the prehistoric Limnaean settlement and the creation of the first Greek Household Museum. The house museum of Dispilion goes beyond the limits of a conventional archaeological exhibition and transforms the archaeological information into a place where one can experience it. In an area of 20 acres that represents the ecosystem of a Limnian settlement, the visitor has the opportunity to walk on the wooden platforms of the village, see the households of the 6th millennium BC and get closer to the life of the Neolithic inhabitants. The representation is framed by reception and recreation areas and expresses a modern museological concept at the level of the use of archaeological information.
