Entry is free! It is a covered excavation site showing the multiple levels uncovered and with plenty of information boards in Greek and English explaining each display area. It is only small but we left with a good grasp of everything that was on display...More

We went here during our stay in Naxos. The museum is well organized and enjoyable. It is easy to understand and they have people around to help or assist you. Worth the €2 to get it.

Was intrigued to visit excavation of ancient town, so wasted hours trying to find entrance and visit this museum. Be sure to find out if it has (re)opened before adding this to your itinerary! Place looked absolutely deserted. A big disappointment.

This site is so small, and so in need of love, and yet the story it begins to tell floored me. If you have a chance to go in, do! (It's free, what have you got to lose?) and it is only a 10-20 minute...More
