Many urban rail transit systems in metropolises are decorated with artistic designs or contemporary art. Within the last 20 years, however, small archaeological exhibitions in metro stations have emerged. The exhibitions consist of some of the archaeological finds discovered in the excavations of the underground systems. The so-called metro museums in Athens and Rome are great examples of the phenomenon, discussed in this article.
