We fell on this by chance and were thrilled we did. The man who works there is so passionate about his subject its contagious. The museum isn't well funded locally so please support him with a contribution. You'll get alot out of this if you chat with him. Don't miss the basement!

Knowledgeable guide, lots of interesting exhibits and larger than it looks from outside. Could have done with more printed literature to accompany the personal talk.

This museum is broken up into little rooms with each room having a bit of a different theme. It is interesting to see as you can learn some of the history.

Must visit for all Mykonian fans. Located just behind the famous Jackie'O and Babylon night clubs. The museum guide,Mr. Panagiotis Giokas is very knowledgeable , warm and friendly with all tourists and he reflects a history with all the collection he holds and maintains today in this museum.
