Aegean Maritime Museum, Mykonos Town

4.0
#3 of 6 in Museums in Mykonos
Established to preserve and present Greek maritime history, Aegean Maritime Museum occupies a 19th-century building in the center of Mykonos Town. Ancient navigational instruments, model ships, and antique maps tell the story of the country's nautical past, transporting visitors to a time when Greek sailors explored and conquered distant corners of the world. Outside, a small museum garden displays larger artifacts, including reproductions of marble gravestones of sailors lost at sea. A large lighthouse also stands here, reminding visitors of the importance such structures held long before the invention of satellite navigation systems.

    It's a tiny Museum, can see everything in 1 hour or less, but it's pretty interesting. There are miniature replicas of the 16 century BC boats until hj

    Opened 15 minutes late, not a word of apology. Small museum, mostly model ships. A few ancient artifacts. Spent 30 minutes and saw everything there. You can decide if 30 minutes is worth the admission...  more »

    The Museum is located in the country, is small but well-kept. The exhibits are interesting to the maritime history of the Aegean!

    Interesting collection of ship models, coins, and nautical related items. A neat feature is the garden out back dominated by the lighthouse top.
