The small museum consisting of only one room, was founded at the end of the last century by Konstantinos Kourouniotis, in order to house some of the findings from the sanctuary of Despoina at Lykosoura; the expenses of the excavation were covered by the Archaeological Society. The building was fully restored and its exhibits were re-exhibited in 1986-7 by the Ephor of Antiquities, Dr. Theodoros Spyropoulos.

The museum contains the following major categories of items:

- Sculptures from the sanctuary of Despoina at Lykosoura,

- Marble and clay votives of various types from the same sanctuary, inscriptions from the same sanctuary.

- Various smaller findings from the area around the sanctuary.
