Worth It
May 2019 • Couples
A small museum, located in town the folklore museum provided us with tons of the island's history, some interesting anectodes and an overall nice experience. The curator was friendly and helpful, telling us more about the objects. The collection is quite big, and very nice. The museum is free, but donations are encouraged. We left a small amount, because the experience was definitely worth it.

Enjoyable wee museum with plenty of Mykonos' history on show. The curator was very happy to teach us about artifacts we found interesting which we really appreciated. No entry fee however a donation was well in order by the time we left.

Considering how small the town is, there's no reason to leave this off of your to do list.

Small but interesting and free
Sep 2018 • Couples
The museum is free, but they're happy to have donations, the curator was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the museum's contents.
There are only a few rooms, most are full of old artefacts but the last room downstairs unexpectedly contains part of a boat, the old town wall and a well. It is rather amateur in places, but fun and interesting.

Small but still worth a look

This small museum is open only in the afternoon. Free, and has some nice displays on life of a bygone era, but no photos allowed. Worth a quick visit and easy to find (next to the famed and always crowded Paraportiani Orthodox Church).

This museum has quite the collection of just about everything from the island. There isn't a cost but you can make a donation. The attendant was very helpful in showing us many items and their history. Quite enjoyable.

Eclectic mix of old things - but it’s free so I am a supporter!

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 Greeks were simple folk, had lots of tradition and culture and had humble lives on tight budgets. The best bit for me is the cellar at the back. If nothing else you can get cool if the sun is strong.

Great to see something like this is free even if some of the exhibits seem a bit frail and in some cases questionable as being important

A Jumble of Surprises

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

It was closed on the Sunday morning
May 2018 • Couples
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 with their collections of local relics. Nice building with whitewashed walls, rating a 3 to be fair.

This museum is housed in an 18th century house. Inside are displays of pottery, toys, ships, an old kitchen and other articles from the 19th century. We were told when they dug down they found a room below which they think pirates used.

The museum is free but they request a donation. It is open from April - October, Monday - Saturday 3:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. and Sunday 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

A step back in time
Oct 2017 • Family
The Folklore Museum was supposed to be closed for cataloging but the guides let us in for a look around any way.
The place is amazing, not like a formal "behind glass" museum but more like a step back in time to another era.
The staff were really friendly and were keen to answer all our questions on the contents of the house, a great way to pass some time.
