So much to see. An amazing museum of archaeological sites. Ancient Greece comes alive here. As other reviewers have noted, the entire island is an archaeological site. Taking a boat ride is best, and expecting to spend at least an hour in the museum and an hour outside wandering around will be enough. We were on a National Geographic tour... More

Visited Delos earlier this week and it was a very bumpy ride indeed travelling across on the ferry, more so on the way back. As one who has his sea legs it was not a problem for me but there were certainly a few WHITE FACES on board, more so on the return journey. So if Delos is on the... More

Delos is an island no one can stay on except for archeologists, so basically the whole island is a museum. I would recommend a boat tour that takes you to this island for 2hrs. We went for 3hrs and it was a bit long. To get onto the site there is a 5euro charge, but everything on the island (besides... More

You cannot help but be in awe of the amazing craftmanship in this museum.So many sculptures and coloured mosaics. It is good to see that the Greeks want to preserve their history and you can see this in the work that is still going on today. Worth the visit and also a respite from the hot sun outside.

The amazing tour and stroll through Delos' open air archeological site is culminated by a visit to this wonderful museum that offers in display the artifacts collected through the decades. A treasure for humanity to indulge and learn from the remnants of our ancient forefathers. An intellectual orgasm of the highest caliber.

We had a guided tour of Delos led by a professional...the tour guide was not allowed in the museum with us but did recommend a few things for us to look for while we visited on our own. The actual lions from the avenue are located in the museum with many other artifacts for preservation. The museum was hot and... More

Wonderful little museum showing some wonderful statues and everyday goods found whilst excavating. They had toilets there and also a small guide/tour book of the site. If you visit Delos you must go here.

All tiny Delos island is a Museum.If you visit it you should see it all!The MUseum is small ( only few rooms) with very interesting exhibits dating from 25th century BC, statues, pottery and every day items. Many pieces are excellent, you have to see by yourselves.

Small museum with several rooms filled with original, Ancient Greek artifacts. Fee to enter is included in your tour fee to the island. Statues in various states of completeness (due to age of course), several of the original Delos lions are in the museum, jewelry, cookware, busts, mosaics, full size statues, etc. after there to view.

There is no fee to enter and the pieces displayed here were all found on the island. There are restroom facilities inside. You are allowed to take pictures of the pieces on display.
