This little museum, rather a house full of old bits and pieces, sits near the old historic church, the ferry point and the side alleys near to Little Venice. It won’t take you long to go around and ina nutshell gives the impression that the...More

This museum was very fun to tour. Every inch of space held something of historical value. The collection of religious prayer plaques was fascinating.

A small group of us headed here but found it closed on arrival. A friendly local advised 'maybe' 11.00am, but no, still closed. At that stage we decided to head to the waterfront and have lunch. Shame really as we like to see local museums...More

This small but interesting museum is right next to the Paraportiani Orthodox Church. It was created by a local resident who thought all the stuff he had collected would be of interest to the public. He was right.

I love this museum, which preserves a Mykonian sea captain's home and gives a window into life in Mykonos in another era. It's staffed lovingly by volunteers, and features some collections of art, prints, furnishings and my favorite, tamata (metal votive offerings). Highly recommended!
