A little visited gem of a museum with a fine collection of artefacts from the cyclades in particular grave stelae from the island of Rhenaia. The high spot of the collection is a vase which show the earliest depiction of the fall of Troy including Greeks peering out of the Trojan Horse

We passed by without knowing the museum was here, and so stopped for a look. Cheap €2 entry, but in my opinion that is fine, not too much, so you don't mind inside being basic. The pottery was very interesting, and so much of it, all very similar. But some were really interesting and more substantial. Would of enjoyed it... More

If you're wandering around Mykonos, stop at the museum for half an hour for 2 euros per person. It features the burial remains from Rheinea which the Athenians had removed from Delos. There's a lot of pottery and marble as well as other burial artifacts. We particularly liked the giant ceramic vase with 3D imagery of the Trojan Horse.

The museum has an excvellent display that covers the pre-classical Minoan civilisation of the Aegean destroyed by the Santorini eruption plus Roman and later material. The exhibits are well displayed. It is a pity there is no gift shop or bookshop.

There is a thing about some museums in Greece - they should not exist at all. The archaeological museum of Greece is just a waste of resources, I guess it is there just because "a very touristic place should have a museum". It is a pitty, given that there may be tones of artifacts from nearby Delos to be exhibited.

If you are into Archaeology or just fascinated by ancient History, don't miss a visit to this Museum. It's full of locally found artefact's and Pottery which although not all found in one piece, have been very expertly reassembled with as many original parts as possible. My favourite piece is a large Greek Erne depicting the Trojan Horse and the... More
