It is a small but interesting museum, worth to go for 30-40 minutes. My attention was drawn to the model of a ship from the time of Alexander the Great. Outside in the courtyard you one can see an old lighthouse.Important for the history of navigation in the Aegean Sea. And do not forget that Mykonos island was so small,... More

The most interesting stuff is a series of ship models from ancient times to fairly modern ships. This was accompanied by misc items, a light house beacon and some cannons.

This is an interesting place to visit if you are into maritime history and antiques. It is a small place in the middle of Mykonos and is very hard to find. We used the gps on a cell phone and got lost a couple of times while looking. But it is interesting to see old coins, bells, and other maritime... More

Most people walk right by this little building with the canon outside, not realizing what they're missing. It sits along the most trafficked part of the island. During the day, it's folks hurrying to the upscale shops, in the evening it's partiers at the surrounding clubs and bars. But if you go inside you'll learn not just the maritime history... More

Located right on Matoyianni street (main shopping street in Mykonos), it is a very small but loaded museum. All the pieces date back as far as the 1st and 2nd century BC. I was afraid to touch anything in case it crumbled in my hands. The museum shows good history of the island. They even have coins and navigational instruments... More

The museum has lots of exhibits and is located on this busy road with lots of shops and right near Lena's house. You can easily miss it assuming is just any other shop.

What a wonderful exhibition of Island Maritime history, speaking with the curator it appeared the collection was mainly salvaged and put together by himself. What an effort and an understanding of presentation and history.
