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.

Only 2€ so off we went. This is a beautiful museum.. light and well presented in a Venetian Mansion.

A rustic museum containing a large collection of marble and terracotta figurines and pottery vases. Take time to explore the collection; more signage would be helpful.

Although there are some interesting items in this museum, it takes more than Google Maps to find it. I met several other tourists wandering around looking for it just as I was. There seems to be so much material that it's all just kind of...More

The displays have very little information. There are some amazing items but without proper labeling it is difficult to appreciate. There are some electronic displays but since they were off I have no idea if they explain anything.

This small and very cheap museum on first sight appears to be something to breeze through UNLESS you are interested in Ancient History, and then it is full of fascinatiing stuff. OK, nothing huge and impressive except the Roman tiled floor on the terrace, but...More

Very small museum, entry fee was 2 Euro for an adult. The artifacts inside really blew my mind. The good condition of some of the figurines, despite being nearly 3,000 years old (something else I could not get my head around) was surprising and a...More
