This is a very basic museum. There isn't much to do on Paros, so this is one of the sights. I was surprised to see that it didn't have any Cycladic figures.

There are some good examples of Hellenistic art in the collection as well as Roman Sarcophagi and other items. I particularly liked the mosaic fragments in the courtyard, especially the beautiful floral border. The sculpture fragments are also good, especially the running girl. But the...More

I accidentally found this place, it was unique and had some interesting artifacts. I wouldn't put it on your bucket list, but if you are close by and need to kill some time, this is a cool place.

The museum has a nice collection, and most of the labels are in both Greek and English. Definitely worth the 2 euro entry ticket.

Small enough to really concentrate on the exhibits. There is beautiful Cycladic sculpture and pottery. Finds from Despotiko.

Full of Byzantine icons and relics. Small but definitely worth the two Euros for entrance. Can get close enough to see small details in artwork.

When you are on Paros do not forget to visit the museum. You will find there artworks from the famous parian marble (lyhnitis) and other local materials.

The Paros Museum has only a couple of rooms, but they have several important pieces. The most important (for me at least) is the Parian Marble epigraphic stone. It is one of the 2 pieces in existence (the other in Oxford) of the 3rd century...More
