Do you know where the oldest written inscription on stone is? It is in this museum! This museum is amazing, so small and yet so full of unique things! Do not miss it if you are in Paros, it is so worth it!

For such a small museum it has an incredibly rich collection of artifacts, and you feel free as nobody is constantly checking on visitors . Such a quiet and perfect place !

Interesting and worth the time to see but very underwhelming. A small outer grounds with some artifacts and two main areas to view inside which contain the majority of the pieces. Nicely displayed with most having English translations. You maybe can spend an hour there...More

The museum is small but well worth a visit for the interesting individual pieces they have on display, like the Medusa.
