I visited this museum during a stroll through the old town area in Naxos. I was extremely surprised and delighted by the displays. Many of the larger exhibits are out in the open and you can wander through them. The smaller displays are in wood...More

Has an excellent collection, particularly of 2900-2100 BC Cyclades figures. However, there could be better explanatory texts and the building itself is hot and poorly ventilated. Located in the old upper walled part of town so a nice walk from the waterfront. Definitely worth a...More

Its a small museum filled with pottery, sculpture and glass objects from antiquity. Pretty mosaic on the roof.

I found this delightfully old fashioned and interesting. Full of local finds. Everything is displayed in traditional cabinets, and looks like it needs a bit of love, but the setting is lovely and the people there helpful

Though the collection isn't vast, there is plenty on which to feast the eyes in this lovely museum, from 2,600-year-old statues to Cycladic pottery and ancient glass jars. The building itself is beautiful, too, with its whitewashed walls, vaulted ceilings and amazing rooftop. A "must...More
