This is a small museum on the waterfront, overlooking Mykonos Harbour. Many of the old exhibits, mainly pots, were brought over from Delos, a small island, a 30 min boat trip from Mykonos, & are dated about 5thc - 9thc BC - It does not take very long to go round, but there are some interesting items on display.

Quaint museum, not very extensive but still worth it...and tell the cash lady at the entrance that you're going to visit Delos and she will give you a nice map of how Delos was when it was bursting with it's 30 000 population 2100 years ago!

Lot of interesting artefacts, well displayed. We had been on the trip to Delos the day before, so it was particuarly interesting to us. Really liked the outside area and the tortoise!

Lovely woman on reception very helpful and funny too. The archeological stuff was good, mainly from Delos and another island. Worth a punt and only €2. Bargain.

Great artifacts. Inexpensive and they gave us the map of Delos. Easy walk from Rania Apartment near taxi square.

It's a small museum in a nice old building with a backyard with big potential, but it is neglected..I guess no one cares enough to make it appealing to the visitors.

The Archaeological Museum at Mykonos relates to both the terrestrial and seafaring past of the area. I especially liked the exhibits that dealt with the seafaring history. Almost all the items are from shipwreck recoveries. The only downside is the hit and miss opening of the museum...because of the financial crises, many times one doesn't know when it will be...

There are some unique vases and other art crafts dating over 2,500 years ago. The fee entrance is very cheap and the staff very friendly. Ask the gentleman at the entrance questions about the museum items. If... More

To see the artifacts from Delos, you must go to this museum. the rare 7' funeral amphora, however, was found on Mykonos! It shoes scenes of the Trojan horse, and of the slaughter.
