I thought this was very good if you are into learning and history. Otherwise don't bother. Well laid out and information is in English as well. You need maybe thirty minutes if you browse quickly or an hour if you do it slowly. Not that much but what is there is well laid out and clearly explained. Clean. Wear your mask. The 4 EUROS entrance fee is about right and justifies the exhibition. Staff are polite and friendly.

Small museum. Pleasant and informative enough, but could be better. We had been to Delos earlier in the day and, given that the museum on Delos is closed, were hoping for more information. Apart from a small leaflet, nothing else was available.

We sailed into Mykonos onboard our cruise ship the Celebrity Constellation and had booked with them a tour to Delios which has an enormous archelogical site. Our guide Mr Antonis Pothhidis was fantasic and made our tour of the island and site unforgetable. The site was well above our expectations and the explanations and stories related by our guide were incredible.In short I highly recommend that a visit to Delios is a must when visiting Mykonos. The site itself is extremely well preserved and the museum is fantastic.

I tried to visit in early June and found the place was closed for renovations. No indications of when it might reopen, but it looked very closed indeed!

Across from the main harbor, overlooking the Aegean see our shore excursion "Mykonos on Foot" included a guide escorted tour for our group of 24 to visit the Mykonos Archaeological Museum.
The Museum has an entrance fee of 1 Euro per person and houses pottery from Delos, grave statues, stelae and jewelry from the island of Renia and the Delos necropolis.
Among the museum's highlights is an exhibit of a pithos, or Minoan storage jug with features Trojan War scenes in relief and a statue of Hercules.

This museum is located just above the bus depot in Mykonos. There is a €4 admission charge to enter. At the time of our visit, there was another modern art exhibit where the pieces had been distributed throughout the museum alongside the ancient Greek pieces, a little strange....but a cool thing to do.

Sadly the museum is very very small and you really don't need more than 30 minutes max to see everything.

By far, the most stunning piece is the mortuary urn which has the story of the Trojan horse carved around it. It is beautiful!

There is currently a special exhibit called Vanity, which is about jewelry from about 5300 B.C. until the present day. The descriptions of the jewelry and the explanations about which archaeological sites where they were found are excellent. This special exhibit will continue until "the end of the season" which I was told would be until about October 2018. Entrance is a modest 4 euro. There is also a collection of ancient pottery and amphora. Definitely worth a visit.

It has mostly the stuff (sculptures, pottery, gravestones, etc) that were moved from Delos to Rhenia when it was "purified". Plus a few interesting pieces from Mykonos itself.

I did find the Delos/Mykonos site guide book here for less than at the souvenir shops so if you are going to get the book, the price difference effectively makes the museum free.

This museum has a lot of ancient artifacts. It's amazing to see how well preserved they are considering their age. The setting is in the beautiful town of Mykonos, which has many shops in which to browse and interesting, small churches to visit.

This reminded me of the Egyptian museum, w/glass cases, dust, and old cards in Greek and sometimes English or German. But the vases and the sculptures were lovely, and beautiful. Building was also an architectural gem.
