I must admit that the amazing variety of antiquities and uncovered treasures in this museum was surprising. Having been to many Museums in Athens and larger islands such as Rhodes and Crete, I was not expecting such an enormous amount of exhibits nor did I expect the excellent standard of displays, on Paros. But I was amazed and thoroughly enjoyed... More

There is something here to interest everyone, sculptures which have been very well restored and a very important collection of Cycladic figurines.

This museum is small, but the relics and sculptures on display are amazing. All are the result of excavation on this small island. It's a very accessible, intimate museum, with most of the pieces in view without any glass barriers. Worth a visit.

Operating Tues-Sun, 8am-3pm, the Archaeological Museum of Paros in Parikia, is a must-see.Its exhibits range from small figurines to large column capitals, from the early Cycladic period until the Hellenistic years - from Paros, Antiparos and the surrounding islets. Though small in size, it holds some very special exhibits - like the oldest Cycladic figurine ever found - "The Naked... More

I enjoyed this museum and learnt a lot and now have a huge respect for all the Cycladic islands. Loved the ripe apricots on the tree in the courtyard and ate a few...right off the tree!

the archaeological museum is a little jewel which made me feel that is possible a combination of sun, beaches and good food with a pinch of culture. Really worthy visiting.

Highlights the fact that a small place like Paros has been inhabited since prehistoric times. Small size ensures that all items get a fair amount of attention especially from children who easily get tired in these places. Loved the sarcophagus displayed outside in the pedestrian area as exhibits that you can come really close to. What a gift for the... More

This is a gem, filled with beautiful ancient sculptures and fragments found on Paros. You can see the whole museum in an hour or so. Located near the big Church of the Hundred Doors in the old town of Parikia.
