We went here during our stay in Naxos. The museum is well organized and enjoyable. It is easy to understand and they have people around to help or assist you. Worth the €2 to get it.

Was intrigued to visit excavation of ancient town, so wasted hours trying to find entrance and visit this museum. Be sure to find out if it has (re)opened before adding this to your itinerary! Place looked absolutely deserted. A big disappointment.

This site is so small, and so in need of love, and yet the story it begins to tell floored me. If you have a chance to go in, do! (It's free, what have you got to lose?) and it is only a 10-20 minute...More

We were disappointed to find the museum closed. although according to the information on the door it should have been opened on Tuesdays! Shame because I am sure it would have been interesting.

The museum is located in the square, opposite the Orthodox Church and is free to visit. It is a small area where you can walk on these bridges above the burial grounds where exhibits still lie. Everything around there is quiet and peaceful so I...More
