“Small but packed in museum with a lighthouse replica at the back!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Located right on Matoyianni street (main shopping street in Mykonos), it is a very small but loaded museum. All the pieces date back as far as the 1st and 2nd century BC. I was afraid to touch anything in case it crumbled in my hands. The museum shows good history of the island. They even have coins and navigational instruments and a lighthouse in the back garden. I highly recommend the visit. See my photos.

“I should have spent more time in there”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

The museum has lots of exhibits and is located on this busy road with lots of shops and right near Lena's house. You can easily miss it assuming is just any other shop.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

What a wonderful exhibition of Island Maritime history, speaking with the curator it appeared the collection was mainly salvaged and put together by himself. What an effort and an understanding of presentation and history.

“Great little museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

at 4 Euros and not much to see from the doorway, it looks like it's going to be a rip off but it certainly isn't! It's like a tardis, there is so much inside!
