“Aegean Maritime Museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

It is a small but interesting museum, worth to go for 30-40 minutes. My attention was drawn to the model of a ship from the time of Alexander the Great. Outside in the courtyard you one can see an old lighthouse.Important for the history of navigation in the Aegean Sea.
And do not forget that Mykonos island was so small, poor and arid.
Along this museum is Lena's house, a picturesque home of the town notary on the mid-nineteenth century; home inventory was kept in good condition. You can see as wealthy Greeks lived on the island 200 years ago. The museum and Lena's house are in the center of Hora and are very accessible.

“Interesting if you have nothing else to do”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

The most interesting stuff is a series of ship models from ancient times to fairly modern ships. This was accompanied by misc items, a light house beacon and some cannons.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

This is an interesting place to visit if you are into maritime history and antiques. It is a small place in the middle of Mykonos and is very hard to find. We used the gps on a cell phone and got lost a couple of times while looking. But it is interesting to see old coins, bells, and other maritime items. There is an indoor and outdoor part and for 4 euros its not a bad way to spend an hour or two.
