The museum has some interesting pieces, however the display is fairly boring and does not engage the visitor as it could, more display boards telling the story of Naxos and putting the displays into context with this rather than plain cabinets with antiquities in them would engage and better inform visitors. In saying this the museum only costs 2 euro... More

It's a small museum full of Cycladic statues and locally discovered artifacts dated from the Neolithic age. It is worth a visit.

So wanted to view this extraordinary collection. It's only open two days a week. A scandalous neglect of vastly important cultural treasure.major major bad decision. Ministry of culture FAIL.

Sign posted at the Museum says temporarily it will only be open on Tuesdays and Saturdays, 8:30am to 3pm. We were lucky to wander up there on a Tuesday (May 31). The collection of Cycladic carvings and statues is wonderful. Other exhibits on early pottery finds from neolithic times thru Mycenaean, copper and bronze tools and weapons, gold artifacts, as...

Except in June July August apparently this museum opens, if at all, on two mornings a week, and closes before most ferries arrive in the afternoon. Even when they are supposed to be open, or staff are about, you will be told the museum is closed. Avoid if short of time on this lovely island.

Hopefully the photos will convey some of the wonder in this Museum. Cheap to enter and whilst not the biggest in the league what is on display more than wets the appetite. Ancient Pottery , Statues, Coins and many interesting artifacts. The clincher for me was the 3000 year old 'Naxos Man' & Woman Statuettes , amazing and we were... More
