The basics

Get an inside glimpse into Greece’s nautical history at this gem of a museum, which figures on many Mykonos walking and electric tuk-tuk tours; gourmands can combine culture and cuisine with a Mykonos tour that also includes a wine or cheese tasting. Stroll through the museum courtyard dotted with cannons, anchors, and ship helms to take in the collection of maritime artifacts and instruments inside. Don’t miss the museum’s garden, home to a restored lighthouse lantern displayed alongside a collection of larger artifacts and sailors’ gravestones recovered from around Mykonos.

The Outlying Exhibits of the Aegean Maritime Museum

The Aegean Maritime Museum manages three additional historical exhibits located elsewhere on Mykonos: the picturesque Armenistis lighthouse and two vessels moored at the Hellenic Navy’s museum wharf at the Paleo Phaliro Marina: the Evangelistria (a Perama-type sailing boat) and the Thalis o Milissios (a cable-laying steamship). All three can be viewed for free from outside without having to purchase an additional admission ticket.
