This is an interesting place to visit if you are into maritime history and antiques. It is a small place in the middle of Mykonos and is very hard to find. We used the gps on a cell phone and got lost a couple of times while looking. But it is interesting to see old coins, bells, and other maritime... More

Most people walk right by this little building with the canon outside, not realizing what they're missing. It sits along the most trafficked part of the island. During the day, it's folks hurrying to the upscale shops, in the evening it's partiers at the surrounding clubs and bars. But if you go inside you'll learn not just the maritime history... More

Located right on Matoyianni street (main shopping street in Mykonos), it is a very small but loaded museum. All the pieces date back as far as the 1st and 2nd century BC. I was afraid to touch anything in case it crumbled in my hands. The museum shows good history of the island. They even have coins and navigational instruments... More

The museum has lots of exhibits and is located on this busy road with lots of shops and right near Lena's house. You can easily miss it assuming is just any other shop.

What a wonderful exhibition of Island Maritime history, speaking with the curator it appeared the collection was mainly salvaged and put together by himself. What an effort and an understanding of presentation and history.

at 4 Euros and not much to see from the doorway, it looks like it's going to be a rip off but it certainly isn't! It's like a tardis, there is so much inside!

This is a small little place in the midst of all shopping. You will not notice the place even if you stand in front of it. But one thing for sure, it is a painstaking effort to put together such a wonderful history of Aegean shipping. The museum is neatly organised, arranged in the order of events. Miniature model-ships look... More
