  • The museum has artifacts from even the 3rd millennium BC. Personally, I was fascinated. The staff is friendly and answered a lot of our questions regarding the items. 2€ per person. I would go again.

  • Small and proud of its exhibits. We had lot of fun taking a look. The copy of Venus de Milo is in the center of the museum. I would highly recommend to visit.
  • Fantastic little museum, a thoughtful and well presented selection of important local finds without being overbearing. Cheap to go in and good for 30 mins diversion and includes a life size cast of the Venus de Milo, you get a better view than of the original in the Louvre 😅
  • Open until 22.00 during the summer months it us definitely worth a visit. It features many ancient artifacts from old and early digs and, of course, a replica from the world-famous Aphrodite of Milos!
  • A small museum with some rare objects. Also a copy of the Venus de Milos which was found in a field nearby. Great Aircon...
  • Small museum with only a few rooms, on one level. We found it by chance, when we got lost looking for the Folk Museum. There is ancient art as well as, its modern counterparts. It was an easy walk through, although we were constantly being watched. I guess too many people probably try to touch the exhibits.
