This a small but lovely museum that explains a little about the history of the island. We generally love our history, but I found it particularly interesting as it has an ancient sun dial (which I hadn’t seen up close before). Well worth a visit! And it won’t take up a lot of your day.

If you want to deep dive to the history of Tinos, this is a must see...entry fee is 3eur and it takes you 30-45min to see all relicts

This tiny museum is a small precious poem that you cannot miss. Its size, the choice of objects exhibited, the atmosphere, the guardian sitting outside and smoking cigarettes while chatting over the phone... everything contributes to a sweet decadent mood that will take you through the three big rooms with the sense of being in a private collection rather than in a typical nosy museum where you are looked down by the personnel. Don't miss it!

I didn't know much about the rich history of Tinos but after an hour working through the exhibits here made our stay on the island even more rewarding!.

It s a small but very interesting museum in which you can see a astrological/sun watch in the entrances of the museum.Also you can ask for some details from the kind ladies in the desk.

The museum is worth a visit just to see the stunning 7th Century BC massive amphora. There are different scenes as you work down the body. On the neck there looks to be the birth of Athena coming out of the head of Zeus. Below that there are scenes of lions attacking horses and wonderful chariots and warriors Its much earlier than most greek vases and I find it a fascinating object. It was found in the sanctuary of Demeter at Exombourgo. Also some nice geometric vases and a sundial made by Andronicos of Kyrrhos which shows the time, the equinoxes and the solstices. The museum itself is a relic of the past and needs some serious updating so that visitors can understand and appreciate the ancient history of the island. No mention at all for example of the Mycenaean vaulted tomb found on Tinos.

It was an interesting museum worth visiting. However, some of the artifacts were not labeled which resulted in not knowing what the artifact was

There are some lovely large pots, but many of the smaller exhibits are not labelled at all. This could be a much better museum with a bit of effort.

The Museum was set up in the 1960s and is in urgent need of refurbishment. The paint peels off the walls and the labels are inadequate and outdated. Most of the exhibits come from the sanctuary of Poseidon at Kionia and from the early Tinos town in Xobourgo. Worth a visit for the unusual sundial, the giant relief amphorae and the Roman portrait statues (which are not explained).
