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- figurines, cups, and "frying pans". There are funerary headstones from the Hellenistic and Roman periods and an Egyptian statuette in black granite. Notebooks of the work of archaeologist Christos Tsountas are also on display.

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 quaint museum is worth a visit! Small enough for a quick visit! Enough artefacts to appreciate!
