Though the collection isn't vast, there is plenty on which to feast the eyes in this lovely museum, from 2,600-year-old statues to Cycladic pottery and ancient glass jars. The building itself is beautiful, too, with its whitewashed walls, vaulted ceilings and amazing rooftop. A "must...More

The museum doesn't have the same quantity or quality that you would find in Athens or bigger places, but they had a nice collection for the island. They have a large mosaic and a lot of Mycenean pottery.

Some interesting things to see here (e.g., statue of Marc Antony as a god, mosaic floor). The signs to get to the museum say there is an elevator but we couldn't find it. My wife is very keen on Cycladic art which is why we...More

If you only need one reason to visit Naxos, the museum is it. Like many of the Greek Museums I visited, it is small and somewhat tatty, but the collection is unsurpassed. The number of beautiful early Cycladic figurines rivals that of the National Archeological...More
