We enjoyed our visit to this museum. Lots of interesting historic artifacts. It's an uphill walk to get to the museum so wear comfortable footwear. After the museum, stop into the restaurant for good food with spectacular views. There's a cute little shop downstairs that has unique items to bring back from your Naxos visit.

A very quiet and pleasant place to study how Greece got birth, with wide quality artifacts, information and books to read, nicely maintained the culture , loved the ambiance, must visit information provided is very good and comes to a pocket-friendly entrance price of 4 Euros

Based on a previous visit, this is such a special place and was very sad to hear of its temporary closure, the owner also started the excellent Naxos cultural festival. I was lucky enough to see on the Andreas Boutsikakis concert, and hope the festival and the museum continue,

they run the annual Domus arts festival in the corutyard, but due to a family dispute it is closed. the Domus festival is run in the Carmelite convent yard further up in the Kastro. Apparently the building belongs to the sister who inherited it, of the brother who runs the festival. She wants to sell the building for more than he is willing to /can pay, so the museum is closed. very sad.

the festivlal this year also had classic films as well as the music concerts: this review is based on that

A highlight of our honeymoon. We are both musicians (and music teachers) in the states and LOVED the performance. Beautiful musicianship, and wonderful to see what seemed to be an authentic representation of another culture and get the opportunity to participate in the music & folk dancing. The wine and honey cinnamon raki were a nice touch!!! Would highly recommend a concert to anyone visiting the area!

My rating is based on a previous visit.
The family who own the building in which the museum is housed have had a disagreement. The sister, (matriarch), has decided to sell the building. The sister lives in Italy. The brother, who has been responsible for the operation of the museum, is a local. He is very upset.

Suddenly the museum closed on or around the 12th June. It has been alleged there is some form of family dispute going on. Check the latest position before you go. Even if it is closed, you can still enjoy the other archeological museum on the hill and wander the little narrow streets. Still worth the climb!

It is mainly about family that lived there in 1904 rather than when it was built, which is fine if you know that going in. I approached to visit the "castle" with 1600's in mind. As you go through the couple small rooms and read the card they give you, there are a few interesting points such as trap door and hidden passages. The price is 5E which is a bit much considering the main museum is 2E, but I suppose they must take are of the place!

Didn't actually go into the museum but did attend one of the Domus Festival concerts. The fantastic bazouki player and guitarist played and sang for 2 hours without a break. So professional! And the 4 dancers who came out intermittently were terrific, as well!
Starts at 9 so you only need to arrive at about 8.55. Outside in an intimate courtyard that seats about 60 people. Local alcohol and soft drinks included in €18 ticket price. Great value!
The organiser is a character who gives a good plug for returning the Elgin Marbles to Greece.
Wonderful night!
