Great old captains house. Lots of artifacts from the original owners. A mini peep into Greek life before major tourism changed the town and its economic underpinnings. The docent/caretaker was very well informed. There are self-guided tours in several languages. Costumes, customs, furniture all combine there to show the family's interests, status and private possessions. Worth a stop.

The house itself is set up to reflect its time period. The museum is very small, but there is a lot of interesting stuff... More

I do recommend seeing this small museum. It's unique, free, and in a central location. This may have been the strangest museum I've ever been too. It looked like an indoor garage sale with minimal organization. Some highlights were: a 10 foot model ship, mannequins in traditional garb, four sewing machines, and a paper mache pelican.

Small charming museum. I wish they had a bigger budget to better showcase those pieces of Mykonos history. Easy to find by the water. For those who want to see more than shops, shops, shops in town.

Greek Tourism app listed hours as 16:30-19:30. We waited until 16:45, but no one came to open it. Our hotel staff confirmed that it is not likely open. Enjoyed the short hike and the view.

Quaint little museum hidden in Mykonos Town to show how past generations lived. Small museum, but worth a few minutes stop.

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
