Disappointed that so little is on display...maybe due to end of season. Great views and helpful staff.

Walking up through the winding narrow streets to the Kastro, or the Castle area, is all part of the experience of visiting this 800 year old Venetian mansion, complete with a walled garden used for warm evening concerts. We independently wandered throughout the first floor rooms which included a dining room, bedroom, reception area, library and chapel. Though there was... More

Wonderful opportunity to enjoy the tower and collection that was donated to Chora, a real asset for the townspeople.

I had higher expectations from this museum, I don't know why (probably the expensive ticket contributed to it). The thing is, the museum is actually comprised of a series of rooms, where all kinds of old things, from furniture, to paintings to toys, to literally EVERYTHING (some may be valuable, some had no value whatsoever - sorry) are just thrown...

The museum has some interesting pieces collected by the family over centuries. There are rooms of art, folklore, village crafts etc.

The museum is small and can be toured in an hour. Our guide was amazing this evening! She really taught us so much about the history of the island. Also the views from the windows were spectacular and we heard the musicians warming up for their evening concert. Really a wonderful experience and well worth the 5 euros each we... More

We visited this museum while we walked the streets of old town. While it is nice and interesting it takes only about 15 minutes to see everything. There are beautiful views from the windows and we got some great photos from there.

The Venetian Museum itself is worth a look but the concerts held outdoors in the castle yard are fantastic. We have been several times over the years and never fail to be impressed by the variety of concerts and the standard of the music. This year there were traditional concerts with the guitar and lute together with some Greek dancing,... More

This cost 5 Euros each and takes about 5 minutes to go through. Very disappointed. Yes its ancient but for the cost of entry i expected more. The only thing i could say was a nice view from the window as the sun was setting!

God knows what the point of this museum is. A few small rooms are filled with odd bits and pieces that the owing family used say a hundred years ago like glaces, petticoats, cheap china, photos and paintings of low quality. Nothing as far as I could see telling about the venetian reign in Naxos. Could use with a good... More
