The first excavations of the ancient Greek and Byzatine city of Chersonesus in the Crimea occurred episodically after the 1820s, but in 1888 a full research program was initiated under the aegis of the Imperial Archaeological Commission. By the time after the Second World War much of the ancient city had been excavated, and investigation began of the Chersonesian chora and the Archaic settlement underlying the Doric city. In 1892 a small site museum was established which in 1924 took over apartments in the Monastery of Chersonesus and established the first exhibition of excavation finds. The Museum collections, some of which have now been published, contain over 120,000 items, including a unique collection of over 400 local grave monuments.
