This museum is small enough to "do" in less than an hour, even with small children in tow. It would benefit from more labels and a stricter chronological ordering of the exhibits, but it's worth looking out for some gems including a small 'running Artemis'...More

Loved this place - gives you access to additional chapels on the side of the church. The chapels have a bunch of paintings and frescos from the 17th century in them. The architecture is also incredible and historic. All this for only 2 euros -...More

While this seems a tiny Greek island museum, it houses some magnificent and famous treasures--the Archilochus funerary relief, the superb late Classical Nike, and the archaic Gorgon. There are also vases of the Geometric period with great scenes of battle, much more lively than any...More

A small museum with exhibits from the Mycenaean to Hellenistic Ages. The highlight for me was part of the Parian Chronicle. Entry is only 2 euros- astonishing value for all the marvellous antiquities on display.

If you only go to one Museum, go here. You really have to see it for yourself. Greece did this right. We went to the Acropolis first, very early, then the Museum, and I'm not sure this is the best order; if I did it...More

Sometimes small museums can be disappointing, buy for €2 entry, this museum isn't. Lots of beautiful artefacts including ornately decorated pots, jewellery and some amazingly intact large statues. Staff are friendly and enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Interesting way to spend an hour or so. Easy to...More
