The Archaeological Museum of Mykonos contains exhibitions of ceramics from the graves discovered on Rineia island, headstones, small artifacts, clay statuettes, jewellery and some weapons. Plan on 1 to 2 hours to see the museum. We would have enjoyed it more if the display explanation cards would have had more and better information on them, like in other Greek museums.... More

I tried to visit in early June and found the place was closed for renovations. No indications of when it might reopen, but it looked very closed indeed!

Across from the main harbor, overlooking the Aegean see our shore excursion "Mykonos on Foot" included a guide escorted tour for our group of 24 to visit the Mykonos Archaeological Museum. The Museum has an entrance fee of 1 Euro per person and houses pottery from Delos, grave statues, stelae and jewelry from the island of Renia and the Delos... More

Overlooking the Aegean sea, this town offers a lot for touristic eyes. The white colored narrow streets and the famous Paraportiani Church is simply amazing!

This little museum is easily accessed, but check opening times, as it is staffed by volunteers. Once inside, prepare for very detailed displays, especially of cycladic ceramics, some very ancient, showing the development of the region's art through the centuries. The quality is amazing. There are also some very large engraved terracotta jars, and interesting steles with good explanations in... More

An easy walk from the old port, the small museum has a great deal of pottery from the Cyclades which are quite old. Other displays are related to the nearby Island of Delos which was believed to be the birthplace of Apollo. To purify Delos and prevent ownership disputes the ancient Athenians forbade births or deaths on the island. Many... More

This is a small museum tucked away at the far corner of the port. But it was a nice addition to the museum at Delos. It only takes about an hour if you are leisurely and the cost of a couple of Euros certainly won't crimp the vacation budget. They do allow photographs although flash is not permitted. It's worth...
