I found this delightfully old fashioned and interesting. Full of local finds. Everything is displayed in traditional cabinets, and looks like it needs a bit of love, but the setting is lovely and the people there helpful

The museum doesn't have the same quantity or quality that you would find in Athens or bigger places, but they had a nice collection for the island. They have a large mosaic and a lot of Mycenean pottery.
