The museum is fairly small, and doesn't have a whole lot to see, but it is worth the small entrance fee if you have a spare half hour or so. We enjoyed seeing some of the things they have found on Paros, though it would be better if there was more information on the artefacts as for the most part... More

Small enough to really concentrate on the exhibits. There is beautiful Cycladic sculpture and pottery. Finds from Despotiko.

Full of Byzantine icons and relics. Small but definitely worth the two Euros for entrance. Can get close enough to see small details in artwork.

When you are on Paros do not forget to visit the museum. You will find there artworks from the famous parian marble (lyhnitis) and other local materials.

The Paros Museum has only a couple of rooms, but they have several important pieces. The most important (for me at least) is the Parian Marble epigraphic stone. It is one of the 2 pieces in existence (the other in Oxford) of the 3rd century BC 2m high stone that stood in the Archilocheion, with a unique history of the... More

Small museum but inexpensive and has some interesting pieces to see. If it was more expensive I might not recommend, but since is relatively cheap its worth spending a bit of time checking it out.

This museum is very very smal; the museum on Naxos is larger and nicer. The staf was not very friendly. It closes on 15.00 hr.

I must admit that the amazing variety of antiquities and uncovered treasures in this museum was surprising. Having been to many Museums in Athens and larger islands such as Rhodes and Crete, I was not expecting such an enormous amount of exhibits nor did I expect the excellent standard of displays, on Paros. But I was amazed and thoroughly enjoyed... More

There is something here to interest everyone, sculptures which have been very well restored and a very important collection of Cycladic figurines.
