Aegean Maritime Museum, Mykonos Town

4.0
#4 of 6 in Museums in Mykonos
Specialty Museum Museum
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.

  • Loved the museum and the shop models. Beautiful china displayed from the captain's home. Staff was very courteous and made our visit very enjoyable. Not very accessible for those with mobility issues.  more »
  • Nice place to spend a cultural half hour away from the shopping streets of town. Admission costs 4 euro or 2 euro for students.  more »
