This is a small museum based on the items found in the area, which includes the island of Delos. One ceramic piece is spectacular. It is an extremely early depiction of the war at Troy. The depiction of the Horse is one of the earliest versions. For this piece alone, the museum is not to be missed.

Just three rooms with load of jugs.A few other pieces. There was an outside garden but not very well cared for.

Visited this museum. The staff has courteous and knowledgeable. We had a lot of time to view the artifacts. Free to take photos as long as people are not in the shots. Wonder collection of artifacts from several centuries. The entrance fee was reasonable. Located on major street, within walking distance of cruise terminal and or downtown. It is a fun and interesting way to spend the day in Mykonos. It was intellectually stimulating. The staff is making strides in improving facility. It is a small museum but I was able to learn things about history. Most artifacts derived from Delos. It is a good way to see history. We were allowed to browse at our leisure.

For the entrance fee of 2 Euros per person, we did not have high expectations of this museum. However, some of the exhibits were quite fascinating. From ancient spoons to glassware, and a variety of earthern pots, the collection was quite fascinating. Many gravestones from Delos were also on display. Not exceptional, but may be worth a visit especially if you fancy ancient pottery and have time to spare after exploring Hora.

This is a small museum that can probably be seen in one hour but it is worth a visit. The entrance fee is 2 Euros which I find it fair.
It mostly exhibits pottery found during excavations in Delos. The highlight of the museum is the big vase depicting scenes from the Trojan War.
