Since 1973, the archaeological collection of Arta has been housed in the Trapeza (dining room) of the Paregoretissa Monastery, a building of the 13th century. The 12th Ephorate of Antiquities is already planning the construction of a new archaeological museum in the city of Arta.

The collection includes funerary stelae and burial offerings from the cemeteries of ancient Ambracia, finds from the ancient city of Ambracia, the "Koudounotrypa" cave, and several other sites in the region of Arta.
