One of the great museums I have been. Despite small I have found a housed great collections from Classical, Hellenistic and Roman periods, together with a collection of vases from various periods. Everyone stops to see the original lions from the Lions terrace. The ones outside on the site just replica made of plaster-cast. There are also toilets.

Quite small, but worth taking a look inside. No additional charge to get in. It contains the real lions (the ones on site are replicas) as well as original mosaics and a number of marble statues.

The small but interesting museum on the island of Delos houses some very interesting items that were housed to save them from the elements. Fascinating to see the workmanship from so long ago in history

The museum contains many finds from Delos. It also provides context for the glories of the site itself. It seems churlish to complain but given the excellence of the content it is a pity the display wasn't a bit better. Perhaps it is due to funding constraints.

This small museum houses statues, frescos, mosaics and other items excavated on Delos that need to be protected from the elements. It's remarkable because every piece in the museum was found on Delos. The famous Lions of Delos are housed here (replicas stand where the originals were found). Despite its small size, there are an astonishing number of statues -... More

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.
