The Archaeological Museum of Delos is a museum on the island of Delos, near Mykonos in the South Aegean, Greece. It is noted for its extensive collection of statues unearthed in the surrounding area of the ancient site, which has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Although the museum has a considerable collection, it does not contain all of the items found in Delos: a large quantity are on display in Athens at the National Archaeological Museum.HistoryIn 1872, the French School at Athens began excavating on Delos, in a project on a massive scale, which is still ongoing today.As the collection accumulated, the museum was built on-site in 1904 by the Archaeological Society of Athens to accommodate the archaeological discoveries. Its original five rooms went underwent expansion in 1931 and then again in 1972 to nine rooms.

  • Beautiful Museum, although modest size does not matter, what matters are the wonders retrieved and inside. Worth going.

  • If you are looking for a great Museum, it won't be one this! only if you have 1/2 hours to go...

  • A small museum with a few but very important exhibits. And only for the Chronicle (the section of which is located in Greece) deserve to go. Should be protected better, perhaps behind a glazed, or existed someone to oversee.

  • Great little musuem showing some of Paros' rich history
  • Well worth €2 visit (free if you're a student) - If you have an hour spare before catching your ferry I'd recommend. After enjoying Paros' towns and beaches you get a reference to the islands history and contribution to the arts/civilisation. We left our hand luggage safely near the entrance while we walked around the exhibition. Beautiful and interesting 👍🏻🇬🇷😄

  • Gorgeous. A must see.

Where to stay in Paros

Paros serves as a convenient base for exploring the Cyclades island group, so its best rooms near popular beaches fill up early in the season. Plan ahead and book your stay in Parikia, the island's biggest town, where you can choose from mid-range hotels and self-catering apartments offering modern amenities and quick access to the sea. Alternatively, consider the small fishing settlements scattered along the island's coastline, where locals rent out simply furnished rooms a walk away from secluded coves and Venetian ruins.
