Facing the sea in the Old Port in Chora (Mykonos Town), this museum presents a unique collection of artifacts discovered in excavations throughout the island and in neighboring Delos and Rhenia. It includes marble and clay sculptures, vases, jewelry and ceramics, dating back to the 9th century BC.
The museum was created in 1902, in order to preserve artifacts discovered in Rhenia in 1898. Its most famous piece, however, is a vase with an image of the Trojan horse (pictured below) dating from the 7th century BC and unearthed in Mykonos in 1961.
Everything is spread over six exhibition rooms and a courtyard. Visitors are welcomed by statues of Hercules and Aphrodite, and then step into the room with pottery, weapons and jewelry. That’s followed by a display of vases (mostly from the neighboring islands of Naxos and Paros), tombstones from Rhenia and sculptures.
The museum is closed on Mondays throughout the year.
