At the side of the City Hall the Archaeological Museum displays finds from the important prehistoric Cycladic site of Halandriani and marble statuary of the Hellenistic and Roman times. the display is old fashioned and the information basic, but it is worth a visit.

Syros is stunningly beautiful with white-washed houses snuggling in a bay. Syros is the administrative centre for the whole Cyclades islands group and although most of the town’s buildings and houses are not particularly old (they date mostly to the late 19th/20th centuries) excavation has found many graves, ceramic vessels, statuettes and ancient ruins that date back to the Bronze...

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 see the cycladic figurines and the decorated pans that are a sort of fascination to... More

Founded back in 1834-5, this museum is now located on the left of the Town Hall, and is well worth visiting. Though small, it contains some interesting examples of Cycladic art and crafts, retrieved mainly from excavation sites in nearby Chalandriani. Unfortunately most of the local finds have been taken to Athens, but there are still enough statuettes and pottery,... More

There's not a great deal to see at this tiny museum, tucked away around the side of the Town Hall, but it's still worth a visit if you have time. As well as some finds from Chalandriani in the north of the island there's an interesting Egyptian statue made of black granite dating from 730 BC.

We loved this small museum with findings from the Early Bronze Age and the Cycladic period. What we found amazing was the part of the museum that included the Archaeologist´s (Tsountas) process and thoughts about his findings, the historic walk step by step to the discovery of Kastri and Chalandriani. A must see in Syros, the actual settlement is not... More

Very cheap, so you can't complain there, but there isn't much to see either. I wouldn't consider it a priority.
