What To See In Mykonos | The Archaeological Museum

Mykonos is a small island and there isn’t too many museums here for a typical “museum buff”. But, one of my very favorites and a “must see” for anyone visiting the island is the Archaeological Museum of Mykonos. On the outskirts of the village of Chora, within easy walking distance from the old port, the small museum houses exhibits dating from the Prehistoric to the Hellenistic periods. At this museum you will see treasures all found on the island – everything from vases, statues, gravestones, busts, tools, jewelry and more. You will get a look at the daily lives, adornments and environments tied to the ancient Greeks who inhabited this island year ago. For a nominal fee, you can spend an hour or more soaking-in the history and beauty that has been preserved by the supporters of the museum and the Greek government. Don’t miss it.
