This museum is near the other museums on Naxos in the Castle area. It was very nice and had lots of in tact pottery and figures unlike many other museums in country that had just pieces due to vandalism in years past. I thought this was definitely a good museum worth the visit.

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 went and were not disappointed. I appreciated that the museum let us purchase advanced tickets... 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 Museum in Athens but due to the absence of crowds you can pause and admire... More

The museum is right on top of the old citadel. Easy to find despite the maze of narrow cobbled streets - look for signs if you are unsure about the direction. The collection is not particularly large but contains some valuable material, mostly pottery, neolithic and Bronze Age tools, beautiful golden ornaments, a couple of bronze swords and various later...

This is a pleasant place to visit. At €2 it's good value but do ask for the senior/pension rate if you're over 65, this is not clear from the admissions info. Nice rooms in the old castle buildings. Some useful general explanations, but more help understanding the significance of the items would be helpful

I think if you just pass through this museum without stopping to read the info it could seem a little underwhelming. The thing to note though is the great age of some of these objects made thousands of years BC. It's not expensive to visit and the whole castle complex is a nice place to explore. We were glad we...
