Always good to learn about the area

Lots of history, poor labelling but fascinating artifacts. It's important to see these places to understand the culture of the islands

As most of the museums outside Athens, the Archaeological Museum of Paros is small but its collection is wonderful and deserves to be seen. The sculptures and objects on display come from the excavations on the island of Paros and the nearby islands of Antiparos and Despotiko and some of them are wonders of art.

Before or after visiting the extraordinary church, drop into this delightful museum. Walk along the park beside to see amazing pieces lying about. An excellent collection of sarcophagi with relief figures and inscriptions. Some lovely little items from the Cycladic era and a seriously frightening Gorgon (from 580 BC) and the Nike (480 BC) Definitely worth visiting and an absolute... More

Some truly fantastic pieces to be seen here really upclose. The sheer volume of the archaeology on Paros is summarised very well. After 10 years of travel and thousands of musuems- it is the museum that houses my favourite statue of all time (well so far!) - definitely worth a visit! Top tip - take a bottle of water with...

Parian chronicle a highlight for linguistics buffs. The mosaic floor remnants in the courtyard are nice examples of this art form

This is a small museum, but the pieces of antiquity are priceless. No hurry to get around as the four of us were the only ones there, lots of time to read what explanations are present. Some outstanding pieces such as the gorgon and Nike.

Last June 2015, I visited the Paros archeological museum for the first time and I was very impressed by the quality of its numereous "cycladic" artefacts. I went a second time three days after my first visit and was happy I went back!
