Most people walk right by this little building with the canon outside, not realizing what they're missing. It sits along the most trafficked part of the island. During the day, it's folks hurrying to the upscale shops, in the evening it's partiers at the surrounding clubs and bars. But if you go inside you'll learn not just the maritime history of the island, but though and out the rear you'll find sheer joy in the quiet solitude of its well kept garden, complete with the actual "light" from Mykonos old lighthouse.

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.

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.

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.
