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.

  • It is not something what particular but near the Centre, the port and Notre Ekkatontapyliani. So a good opportunity to admire the architecture and History!

  • Just behind the Church Panagia Ekatondapyliani lies this very interesting Museum, full of relics such as the Nike of the 5th century.

  • A considerable number of exhibits is sandwiched in a hopelessly small space, who is unable to accommodate even the few that survived the years archaiokapiliki practice locals and "visitors". Deserves our attention, however, because the value of the exhibits is disproportionate and Government indifference!

  • 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 👍🏻🇬🇷😄
