Two euro to get in, medium-sized museum, great collection of sculpture, pottery, jewelry. Easy walking distance from town. Takes about an hour or so to see it all.

One of the best museums in Chios! It's small but you can spend a whole morning there. Greece and Chios have an amazing history and here you get to know more about it.
