Usually you don’t go to Mykonos to visit the archaeological museum but if you have an hour to kill you won’t be disappointed. 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.

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
