Visited this museum. The staff has courteous and knowledgeable. We had a lot of time to view the artifacts. Free to take photos as long as people are not in the shots. 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.

Mostly ancient Greek vases and other funerary finds from Delos. Certainly worth popping into in the heat of the day - an hour is sufficient, and it is cheap.

This museum is small and suffers, like most Greek museums, from a lack of information. It is mostly displaying funeral ceramics which were removed when the island of Delos was 'cleansed' in antiquity and some objects are very good quality and itneresting. However the museum deserves a mention simply because it had the nicest, friendliest staff member of all the... More

Such care is taken in displaying priceless antiquity. Pots, jewelry, statues, and a "backyard" with thousand year old markers, and a feeling you've traveled perhaps even further south to Tunisia. The shops are wonderful, but the museums tell the story of the people and immerse you in the myth that is Greece. Wonderful!

Worth the few euros to enter - pottery and relics from 7-5th centuries. Quiet, but worth a peek - the jewelry and statues are amazing. You truly get a sense of the history of the Greek islands.

While not big, there are some interesting items on display from Delos. It is worth a visit before or after visiting the site.
