A small museum, mainly consisting of ancient urns. Free entrance. Some objects had information in English.

This is an excellent museum containing some really fabulous local stuff including some very important finds from Renia. We called in one day at the weekend (can't remember if Saturday or Sunday) and was told it was a free admission day. Nice! A small leaflet is given with the ticket but that was all the literature available. I would have... More

It was very hard to find. The trip advisor app sent us somewhere totally different. Finally by mistake I saw it on the city map at the port so we walked in. It is located at the old port. It will be on your right hand side if you are heading towards the new port. If you look at the... More

This is the only place where I have ever seen a historical artifact describing the Trojan horse. I also admired other pieces of pottery, statues and archeological findings. The museum is near to the port, fee is very reasonable and it was definitely worth the visit.

This is a delightful museum near to the port in Mykonos town. Easy to find, and very cheap to enter (€2). Most of the items on display were found on a neighbouring island a few centuries ago, and the urns and pottery have all been meticulously restored. The age of almost all the items takes your breath away - from... More

I love to visit the local museums when I travel, but I was unimpressed by this one and was in and out of there within 5mins. If you don't read Greek it is difficult to know what you are looking at. There is no guide brochure to give an overview of what is in the museum and the workers there... More

Take a break from the beach and check this out - a lovely old building with lots of history to offer...as other reviews have pointed out. A trip to the past to remind one how ancient a place we are in. Also - there's a huge old tortoise that lives in the enclosed garden. A real change of pace...and worth... More

Nice old looking building close to the city center. Very interesting objects on display, especially a vase telling the history of Troy. Nice also the funerary stelae about the maritime life and death of local ancient sailors. It is worth a visit.

There is an extraordinary archaic vase about the trojan war!!! It is worth the trip to Mikonos. There are also findings from Delos and Rhenia Islands. Very special are the funerary stelae related to sea misadventures and accidents.

I liked to see these ancient and beautiful excavations. Especially the huge pottery with carvings about the "mythical" Trojan war.
