Archaeological Museum of Naxos
Archaeological Museum of Naxos

Located in Naxos' Chora, near the top of the Castle, housed in a listed five-storey 17th century building and an impressive example of Frankish architecture, the archaeological Museum of Naxos houses a large collection of exhibits, artefacts and everyday objects (5300 BC-5th century AD), which came to light after continuous excavations in Naxos and the surrounding small islands.

The Proto-cycladic marble figurines (3200-2300 BC) are unique, as are the rich pottery collections from the Mycenaean (late 2nd millennium BC) and Geometric period (9th-8th century BC). Here you'll also have the opportunity to see a wonderful collection of glass vessels from the Roman period (1st BC-2nd century AD).
