It won't take long to go through this museum but it offers a nice collection of the archeological history of the island and the Cyclades islands more broadly.

This small museum on the western side of the Town Hall is well worth the entrance fee €2. It houses artefacts from early Cycladic to late Roman times. Most of the finds are from the prehistoric cemetery of Chalandriani and include objects of everyday life-...More

This small museum contains some quite remarkably well preserved Bronze Age artifacts. Well worth the €2 entry fee and 20 minutes of your time to see both the quality of craftsmanship for 4,500 years ago and to learn a little of the islands history.

There were several very very old machines, and many photos to enjoy. Be sure to check out the little car at the end.

This museum is by far very small - 2-3 rooms, perhaps? It is very oldfashioned display and looks like they just improvised to squeeze a museum into the side part of the city hall. But to me, as an archaeologist, it was very important to...More
