Skip the ferries and crowded tourist beaches; take a luxury catamaran out into the Aegean Sea instead. On this small-group cruise, sail along the picturesque south coast of Mykonos or set out for Delos, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to a large range of ruins, sculptures, and ancient mosaics. Spend most of the day relaxing on your own terms: swim, snorkel, sunbathe on the beach or explore the sites without anyone to rush you through it.

The museum is not very large and it is without air conditioning. It is a medium-sized museum which gathers many statues and all kinds of objects that evoke the different phases of the history of the island, that are set up next to each other, without any aesthetic design. Unfortunately the collections are generally poorly explained. The lions of Delos (in a windowless room) and the mosaic of the house of Dionysus are among the major pieces of this museum (are not highlighted). Nothing is provided for comfort. We can't sit down because there were no benches nor chairs. Admission is included in that of the site (12 €). Delos is an island that is currently uninhabited and is mainly an archaeological site . You can’t stay there , only the people that are workers stay on the island . You can get to it by Ferry from the island of Mykonos. In June 2019, we left the old port in the afternoon because we missed the 10am boat. We recommend the guided tour without a doubt, unless you are not going with someone who knows the subject, you will just see pillars and stones piled on an island with a very nice view. Once we disembarked, we met up with a tour guide who was quite informative, extremely nice, and knowledgeable. We got a sense of how bustling a place Delos was at that time. When the tour ended, we had time to tour the museum and some other parts of the island, then took the ferry back to Mykonos. Don't miss the museum! Don't forget to bring sun block, a hat (there are very few shady places), and water! If you run out of water, inside the museum they give away a bottle of water per person. It takes about 4 hours to tour the island (including the guided tour). Two warnings: bathing and pets are not allowed on the island.

In many places, like the Acropolis in Athens, you have to go to an offsite museum to see some of the artifacts recovered. Not at Delos, there is an onsite museum as part of your tour that you can go in and see several hundred actual artifacts recovered in the excavations on the island.

This is a huge building with not a great deal to see not worth the time and money. I have seen much better exhibitions on other Greek sites

We stopped at the museum at the halfway part of our visit to Delos. The museum has interesting exhibits and lots of statues. The remaining original lions were moved here to protect them from the elements so it is nice to see them up close. As well, one of the original mosaics was moved to the museum. The museum has toilets located inside.
