Absolutely wonderful museum with hundreds of artifacts from a variety of sources. The Director has done a fantastic job of displaying and restoring these fascinating antiquities - don't miss the manuscript from 3000BC that spells out important economic, environmental and political events of the day.

One can admire the sculptures that are still "alive" after so many thousands of years, uncovering the figures that were made by ancient tools used at that time. It is small but very interesting museum where you can also see old coins etc.

We have visited this small museum previously but it was years ago so we were happy to go back. There are many statues etc which have been found locally. There are also exhibits from the recent excavations from the island of Despotiko - which is off the southern coast of Anti Paros. It is well worth a visit and good... More

The Archeological Museum has a small, but important, collection of objects --- marble statuary, friezes, columns, pottery, etc. --- from Paros ranging from the Mycenaean period to the Hellenistic period. It is an important and fascinating collection that has some thrilling and unique pieces, e.g. a set of early burial vases depicting the combat of the soldiers whose created remains... More

Lots of history, poor labelling but fascinating artifacts. It's important to see these places to understand the culture of the islands

As most of the museums outside Athens, the Archaeological Museum of Paros is small but its collection is wonderful and deserves to be seen. The sculptures and objects on display come from the excavations on the island of Paros and the nearby islands of Antiparos and Despotiko and some of them are wonders of art.

Before or after visiting the extraordinary church, drop into this delightful museum. Walk along the park beside to see amazing pieces lying about. An excellent collection of sarcophagi with relief figures and inscriptions. Some lovely little items from the Cycladic era and a seriously frightening Gorgon (from 580 BC) and the Nike (480 BC) Definitely worth visiting and an absolute... More

Some truly fantastic pieces to be seen here really upclose. The sheer volume of the archaeology on Paros is summarised very well. After 10 years of travel and thousands of musuems- it is the museum that houses my favourite statue of all time (well so far!) - definitely worth a visit! Top tip - take a bottle of water with...

Parian chronicle a highlight for linguistics buffs. The mosaic floor remnants in the courtyard are nice examples of this art form
