I have visited many museums in Greece, Italy and the world, but this Museum takes you back to over 7,000 years of history. It makes you wonder what is the truth about our ancestors.

Although in the island of Syros was found the first installation of the cycladic civilization in the bronze age, most of the objects are displayed in the national museum of Athens. But you can have a brief impression of this objects in this tiny museum. On the other side of the town hall, just by the square, pay a visit to the public library, where stands an extremely interesting exhibition about the history of writing, from cave art to paper and ink. In this place also, there is a collection of rare books, dating from 1500.

It won't take long to go through this museum but it offers a nice collection of the archeological history of the island and the Cyclades islands more broadly.

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.
