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.

We didn't expect amenities. Just antiquity. We got plenty of that. I would like to see more tour guides on site instead of seeing the island mostly on our own, or signing up for an expensive tour from elsewhere. The amount of time allotted is only three hours and it takes longer than that to view things. So you end... More

This small Greek Island is in fact a huge historical excavation site in progress. We caught the daily ferry from Mykonos harbour, Delos is only short ferry trip at a reasonable cost of eu 25 (2012). This historic site established BC was once a major centre of commerce and shipping and at it's peak held a population of 30,000 inhabitants.... More

The museum was very nice. The real lion statues are there, and a lot of very nice mosaic images. You are allowed to take photos of the statues, but you are not allowed to pose in front of them.

It was good to get out of the scorching sun but at the same time great to see more ruins and pottery, marble sculptures from Delos. There is a minimal charge(I can't remember the price) There is a washroom facility in the building a well. Make sure you hike up to the museum while you are on Delos because I... More
