Being interested in antiquities it is a must, there are some very old interesting relics, however a little sparse; however still worth the visit.

The archaeological museum of such an island as Naxos must be more organised, with more protection to exhibits and more qualified and professional staff. The price of the ticket is ok but the museum needs to get better. The exhibits are interesting.

The large collection of pottery from 4,000 BC through the Cycladic era was very good. There was also a nice display of Roman sculptures and glassware.

Interesting museum with archeological items from historic times. Statuary, bowls, figurines, and other items. I think it could be better organized and include more commentary about the items. It's worth a visit but it is uphill so wear the proper footwear!

The ancient cycladic civilization, famous for the characteristic statues, is a very interesting part of the prehistoric era in the Mediterranean. This museum holds some very interesting exhibits, but the decay you feel when you visit it is impressive. Obsolete, old-fashioned presentation, almost no information...More

Small but interesting. I suggest you do this visit with a guide. I didn't but I should have. The history is huge and you do not get everything by going through it alone.
