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...

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.

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
