Essential guide of the museums in Mykonos for cruise travelers: reviews, photos, location, opening hours and entrance fees.

Update: May 23, 2023

Many cruise travelers find very strange that some of the most interesting museums in Mykonos are only open for a few hours in the evening. Although some open in the morning.

In reality, most museums are visited by the those staying in the beach resorts and only visit Chora in the evening. This said the cruise traveler will have the opportunity to visit those few museums that open early in the morning such as the Archaeological Museum or the Museum of Folklore.

If your cruise is scheduled to sail late in the day, you may have an opportunity to visit the other small museums as well. But do not think that much was lost as you will find the most interesting exhibitions in the Archaeological Site of Delos and in Ano Mera.

The cruise traveler will also find quite a few interesting Art Galleries just walking around Mykonos Town - don't miss the opportunity to have a look inside

This museum is one of the most popular attractions on the island, bringing you the long and very rich history of Mykonos. Here in this rather small museum you will discover relics from Rhenea and Delos, including items from tombs on these islands. The sculptures you will view depict scenes of mourning from the island of Rhenea, on which during the 6th century, the Delphic Oracle ordered the removal of all bodies from the island. One of the exceptional items in the museum is the statue of mythical Greek God Hercules, son of Zeus.
