History Museum
“The Lavrio Archaeological Museum, on the edge of the city, is dedicated to the cultural, religious, social and economic history of the area. One of its rooms is dedicated to mines and their operation. The second chamber, as well as the patio, present important archaeological finds from Lavrio, Sounio and Thorikos, covering all antiquity - from the Neolithic to the Early Christian period. Το Αρχαιολογικό Μουσείο του Λαυρίου, στην άκρη της πόλης, είναι αφιερωμένο στην πολιτιστική, θρησκευτική, κοινωνική και οικονομική ιστορία της περιοχής. Η μία του αίθουσα είναι αφιερωμένη στα μεταλλεία και τη λειτουργία τους. Η δεύτερη αίθουσα, καθώς και το αίθριο, παρουσιάζουν σημαντικά αρχαιολογικά ευρήματα από το Λαύριο, το Σούνιο και το Θορικό, που καλύπτουν όλη την αρχαιότητα - από τη Νεολιθική εποχή μέχρι την Παλαιοχριστιανική περίοδο.”

Museum
“The Lavrion Mining Museum is a privileged site: historical education, because of the role played by the Lavrionic silver in classical Athens, but also because of the contribution of the newer Lavrion to the Greek economy, because of its rarity, natural education, form, color, mineral crystallization and aesthetic treatment due to the radiance and beauty of the minerals available. The Mineralogical Museum is a mineral rainbow with sculptural compositions created by the nature-artist himself. Το Ορυκτολογικό Μουσείο Λαυρίου είναι ένας προνομιακός χώρος: ιστορικής παιδείας, λόγω του ρόλου που έπαιξε ο Λαυρεωτικός άργυρος στην κλασική Αθήνα, αλλά και εξ αιτίας της συμβολής του νεότερου μεταλλευτικού Λαυρίου στην οικονομία της Ελλάδας, φυσικής παιδείας, λόγω της σπανιότητας, του αριθμού, της μορφής, του χρώματος , της κρυστάλλωσης των ορυκτών και αισθητικής αγωγής εξ αιτίας της λάμψης και της ομορφιάς των ορυκτών που διαθέτει. Το Ορυκτολογικό Μουσείο αποτελεί ένα ορυκτολογικό ουράνιο τόξο με γλυπτικές συνθέσεις που η ίδια η φύση – καλλιτέχνης δημιούργησε.”

Cinema
“ The Summer Cinema of Lavrion is one of the 60 Open Air Cinemas of Attica, under the stars. Nothing defines the beginning of Greek summer as open-air cinemas do. Every neighbourhood has one – some as old as the history of cinema. It is a apace for all. With their director’s chairs and their compelling aroma of crackling popcorn are still a haunt for the young and old alike. They let you sip on a frappe, knock back a couple of beers, snack, lick ice-creams. ”
