If you're wandering around Mykonos, stop at the museum for half an hour for 2 euros per person. It features the burial remains from Rheinea which the Athenians had removed from Delos. There's a lot of pottery and marble as well as other burial artifacts. We particularly liked the giant ceramic vase with 3D imagery of the Trojan Horse.

The museum has an excvellent display that covers the pre-classical Minoan civilisation of the Aegean destroyed by the Santorini eruption plus Roman and later material. The exhibits are well displayed. It is a pity there is no gift shop or bookshop.

There is a thing about some museums in Greece - they should not exist at all. The archaeological museum of Greece is just a waste of resources, I guess it is there just because "a very touristic place should have a museum". It is a pitty, given that there may be tones of artifacts from nearby Delos to be exhibited.

If you are into Archaeology or just fascinated by ancient History, don't miss a visit to this Museum. It's full of locally found artefact's and Pottery which although not all found in one piece, have been very expertly reassembled with as many original parts as possible. My favourite piece is a large Greek Erne depicting the Trojan Horse and the... More

Trojan horse vase, wierd grave-robber stuff. Staff will answer questions if you ask nicely and can get them to stop chatting among themselves. Look for owl pottery and contemplate the century old building and why it got built in a fishing village that became a hot spot like Mykanos. Good diversion from beach.

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!
