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

Its a small museum but worth to go if you like ancient history. There is no guide but each display is well explained.

This is a small but interesting museum for those curious about the history. The museum is focused specifically on pottery from Rhenia (from ancient tombs moved from Delos), Mykonos, Delos etc. but also are presented other discoveries of archaeologists. I think that this museum is worth visiting for those who arrive on the island. The access is very simple.

Everything we saw in this small museum was removed from the Delos town cemetery. I found the display of what appeared to be wedding rings particularly poignant and somewhat distressing. These goods should have been left in the ground with their owners.

Although it is a small island, it hosts it's own archeological museum. Items are from nearby with a large Trojan horse scene amphora found in Mykonos. The guide was helpful in describing local antiquities.

This is a small museum based on the items found in the area, which includes the island of Delos. One ceramic piece is spectacular. It is an extremely early depiction of the war at Troy. The depiction of the Horse is one of the earliest versions. For this piece alone, the museum is not to be missed.

Wonder collection of artifacts from several centuries. The entrance fee was reasonable. Located on major street, within walking distance of cruise terminal and or downtown. It is a... More

For the entrance fee of 2 Euros per person, we did not have high expectations of this museum. However, some of the exhibits were quite fascinating. From ancient spoons to glassware, and a variety of earthern pots, the collection was quite fascinating. Many gravestones from Delos were also on display. Not exceptional, but may be worth a visit especially if... More

This is a small museum that can probably be seen in one hour but it is worth a visit. The entrance fee is 2 Euros which I find it fair. It mostly exhibits pottery found during excavations in Delos. The highlight of the museum is the big vase depicting scenes from the Trojan War.
