Trip Planner: Europe / Greece / South Aegean / Cyclades / Mykonos / Mykonos Town / Aegean Maritime Museum
Established to preserve and present Greek maritime history, Aegean Maritime Museum occupies a 19th-century building in the center of Mykonos Town. Ancient navigational instruments, model ships, and antique maps tell the story of the country's nautical past, transporting visitors to a time when Greek sailors explored and conquered distant corners of the world. Outside, a small museum garden displays larger artifacts, including reproductions of marble gravestones of sailors lost at sea. A large lighthouse also stands here, reminding visitors of the importance such structures held long before the invention of satellite navigation systems.

We stopped here on an excursion with Holland America. This is a nice museum and certainly worth a stop but our guide took way too long here (45 minutes) and went on and on about nothing.

I must be biased as I have a personal interest in boat building and technology and how that reflects the culture in which they are designed. Well worth at least 20 mins of your time to absorb it all.
Loved the museum and the shop models. Beautiful china displayed from the captain's home. Admission costs 4 euro or 2 euro for students. It's worth going to see it. Heytripster suggested this lovely museum to me in my travel plan. It is what you espect from a Greek museum, not mutch visitors, but hey, more space for you!
