Pretty amazing that this place has survived until now - worth a visit if you hire a bike or car in Ios. Make sure you check opening times before you go.

Being a little small, but very informative, it's an easy-to-visit museum with a cheap fee for entrance (2 euros). You really catch a glimpse of the island's history, with objects covering over 4 millenia!!
