Small free museum.
Jul 2018 • Friends
This is a small local museum for the site of Paleopoli. It is free entry. Despite the fact that some of the items are copies of what is in the Andros museum, it is a nice place to visit. All the items are from Paleopoli. The copies are well done and in the case of inscriptions are more easily read than the originals. There are also original sculptures, including an interesting Nike base, as well as original inscriptions and ceramics. The jewel is the inscription from the precinct of Isis. Well worth a visit and does not take long.

Small museum shows there's more to Andros than sun and sea
Sep 2017 • Couples
If history is your thing, then this small museum adds a dimension to the Andros experience. It chronicles the island's history, demonstrating how sophisticated this little-known (to foreigners) neck of the Cycladic Islands was. Its strategic location yielded artefacts from pre-Classical times, through to the Venetians. Exhibits are labelled in Greek and English and the space is well-organised and well-lit. There's apparently an ancient site down the hill from the museum, but having been warned about the snakes in the area, we gave it a miss!

In the centre of Chora down some steps leading to the sea.

Museum is housed in two buildings across the steps from each other. 4 euros entrance fee... The museum is housed in a building owned by the community of Palepolis. The collection includes sculptures, statues, coins and signs found in excavations made in the area including a marble lion, a marble statue of Artemis, and a marble plaque in honor of the goddess Isis.

A little gem!
Jun 2015 • Couples
This was our first visit to the Museum in about 17 years, and we were really impressed with the way it's been developed. There are some wonderful larger exhibits in two rooms - the engraved Hymn to Isis is stunning - as well as another room devoted to the smaller finds in the area. The labelling is excellent, as are the explanatory notices on timelines, development, geography of the site, etc. Well worth a visit.

Well, it is a very small museum with few excibits. Nicely presented though, but you will see the whole of it in 10 minutes
