  • Not to be missed on your visit to Parikias. It doesn't take long to take a walk around this museum and it is well worth the 2 Euro entrance fee (only 1 if you're a senior!) The artifacts are nicely.....  more »
  • There is lots of great history here.For 2 euros it should not be missed! You can get very close to artifacts.  more »
  • For €2.00 you get a brand new looking building full of artifacts from several centuries ago. The pieces are well marked with appropriate information. The small treasures in the cases are not so well.....  more »

  • Absolutely great place to visit if you're visiting Paros, whether or not you're interested in history. It has a lot of things dating back thousands of years ago with most of them around 700BC-400BC. It also has the mosaic floor of the ancient Greek gymnasium that depicts Herakles' Labors, massive (although mostly broken) statues of Artemis, Athena and Gorgon. Tens of pots and burial casks, little pots, coins, and ornaments from that time period. Go during the early morning to avoid the Greek sun's peak at 12PM.
  • Very nice museum, with a very cheap ticket, but it needs more effort to become a modern museum. There are some truly beautiful pieces but more explanations are needed, maybe with some interactive displays and something more about the history of the relics, the excavations etcetera. As it is, it's a very old-fashioned museum but still well worth a visit if you like antiquities (as I do).
  • When you first walk in it feels like a garden centre - the displays are just strewn around outside with no information. There are a few disparate rooms with more displays, many of which are unlabelled, labelled incorrectly (e.g. "head" on what is clearly a torso), or so worn and water damaged they were unreadable. There was one particularly interesting statue (the Gorgon), and it was only a couple of Euro to get in, but wow they really didn't try.
  • Amazing site showing what the buildings looked like in Greece centuries ago. Worth a visit!
  • A lovely, quality little museum. The pathway leading up to it is full of archaeological pieces.
