“Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

This is an interesting place to visit if you are into maritime history and antiques. It is a small place in the middle of Mykonos and is very hard to find. We used the gps on a cell phone and got lost a couple of times while looking. But it is interesting to see old coins, bells, and other maritime items. There is an indoor and outdoor part and for 4 euros its not a bad way to spend an hour or two.

“Solitude among the tides.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Most people walk right by this little building with the canon outside, not realizing what they're missing. It sits along the most trafficked part of the island. During the day, it's folks hurrying to the upscale shops, in the evening it's partiers at the surrounding clubs and bars. But if you go inside you'll learn not just the maritime history of the island, but though and out the rear you'll find sheer joy in the quiet solitude of its well kept garden, complete with the actual "light" from Mykonos old lighthouse.

“Small but packed in museum with a lighthouse replica at the back!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Located right on Matoyianni street (main shopping street in Mykonos), it is a very small but loaded museum. All the pieces date back as far as the 1st and 2nd century BC. I was afraid to touch anything in case it crumbled in my hands. The museum shows good history of the island. They even have coins and navigational instruments and a lighthouse in the back garden. I highly recommend the visit. See my photos.

“I should have spent more time in there”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

The museum has lots of exhibits and is located on this busy road with lots of shops and right near Lena's house. You can easily miss it assuming is just any other shop.
