Aegean Maritime Museum, Mykonos Town

3.8
#3 of 7 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.

  • Museum, despite its small size, like: interesting expositions, including replicas of ships, from Triremes to greet, many items "marine paraphernalia" from different eras.

Museum entrance tickets-penny, 2 euro. The Museum opens at 11:00.

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