Of the three museums in town, this was our favorite. Had some very interesting pieces, reasonable well labeled, and a beautiful outdoor area in back.

bluntly speaking, is doesn't resemble a museum at all... there is nothing worth seeing inside ... it is tiny and looks like another shop of fake precious things that are plenty in mykonos ...

Takes about 1 hour to go through and appreciate the maritime history of the area. Be sure to check opening times and days on the website as they can be a bit randomly adhered too.

Good interesting museum right in middle of the main street, models of the various ships incredibly detailed, apparently the lighthouse out the back was a real working model from the island!

It's rather useless if they advertise opening at 10:30 if that's not when they open. Hopefully they're open when we go to town later.

It is a small but interesting museum, worth to go for 30-40 minutes. My attention was drawn to the model of a ship from the time of Alexander the Great. Outside in the courtyard you one can see an old lighthouse.Important for the history of navigation in the Aegean Sea. And do not forget that Mykonos island was so small,... More

The most interesting stuff is a series of ship models from ancient times to fairly modern ships. This was accompanied by misc items, a light house beacon and some cannons.

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
