Aegean Maritime Museum, Mykonos Town

3.3
#5 of 7 in Museums in Mykonos Town
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 is actually a chamber of memory, but interesting To be organized. Chronologically arranged models show the history of navigation in the Cyclades, the whole of the accurately shown, the space perfectly managed in 3 small halls. A lot of souvenirs from the 19TH and 20TH centuries. But the most beautiful is the courtyard... Large well-kept, with an old lantern, graves of captains, departments. For him it is worth to give these 4 E.

  • I liked it very much. It's for a half-hour ride. I think it is more for the Greeks than for tourists, because it exhibits mainly historical relics and small objects of which one must know the history to appreciate. And do not miss to see the (full) lighthouse out in the garden! One deserves to go just for him. The ticket I remember seemed very reasonable, and the space is very very pleasant.
