Well it's not as great as other museum that we've seen. But Mykonos town is quite a small place and there's no harm in stopping by and pay a visit - it won't take long. The goods: this place is actually the oldest house in mykonos town. The owner collects a lot of artefact and historical items. The keeper is... More

Makes for a nice exterior picture - interesting building all by itself. They need to expand or adopt the motto "less is more" - way too much stuff inside to make sense of.

Would be more interesting if better organized. Crowded with items. Best part was a view from a back window of the building over the water.

Didn't have a chance to go inside of the museum, from what I saw outside it didn't seem too exciting, however, it is nice to have a quick picture moment outside of the oldest building on the island. Original architecture and shutters...not amazing but something to say you have done :)

A lot of things in this museum. Not very well organized unfortunately. Easy to miss objects because it is so full of everything. Very friendly museum guide who told us about the man who used to live here and explained the history to us.

Called into this small museum and we were shown around by Panos who gave a wonderful talk about what life was like at that time. We loved the secret pirates door and the old boats. Well worth a visit.

Well worth up to an hour's visit. A lot of interesting artefacts from the past of Mykonos and generally the maritime history of the Cyclades Islands. Make sure to visit the basement to see not only some well-done reconstructions of local ships, but also some remains of the original Mykonos Castle (Kastro), and to hear about the local pirate-turned-baker and...

If you walk past and happen to find it open, do NOT miss the chance to have a look. Very instructive on folk history of Mykonos.
