Last June 2015, I visited the Paros archeological museum for the first time and I was very impressed by the quality of its numereous "cycladic" artefacts. I went a second time three days after my first visit and was happy I went back!

A lovely little museum with some wonderful pieces. The gorgon and Nike alone are worth the effort. The generously proportioned lady is a small gem. Labelling are minimal but you'll want to learn more afterwards!

I was happy that we went here. Given that Paros is a small Island in comparison to others with little to do, I did not think it would be as interesting as it was. It's not a big place but it's worth stopping in.

This is a very basic museum. There isn't much to do on Paros, so this is one of the sights. I was surprised to see that it didn't have any Cycladic figures.

This museum is very understated but it contains some extraordinary archaeological treasures. We were very glad we spent time there.

There are some good examples of Hellenistic art in the collection as well as Roman Sarcophagi and other items. I particularly liked the mosaic fragments in the courtyard, especially the beautiful floral border. The sculpture fragments are also good, especially the running girl. But the whole place has a forlorn air and the exhibits badly need new and more informative... More

I accidentally found this place, it was unique and had some interesting artifacts. I wouldn't put it on your bucket list, but if you are close by and need to kill some time, this is a cool place.

The museum has a nice collection, and most of the labels are in both Greek and English. Definitely worth the 2 euro entry ticket.
