It was founded in 2012 with the goal of preserving and protecting the finds discovered during archaeological excavations at St. Anthanasius Cape. The idea for the museum was born in 2009 when the first drilling studies began. Two years later, the project for the restoration, conservation, and socialization of the late antique fortress on St. Anthanasius Cape was completed.
