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.

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.
