The artifacts are brilliantly arranged, and archaeological specimens invite a visit to their original in situ finds! Could have been more rooms... but concise and exciting information for Syros and its 5000 years.

The artefacts are cool, attractive even, but there is limited information about them. It won't take you longer than 15 mins to peruse through all of it but a pleasant diversion for those with a taste for the historic and/or artistic.

This rather small museum is on the north west side of the Municipal Hall of Syros - climb up more steps and to the right. Has a bit of a story to tell about archeologist Christos TSOUNTAS - I took a bit more interest as...More

This tiny museum, tucked away at the back of the Town Hall, contains some lovely pieces, namely the exquisite figures from the ancient cemetery and a seated black basalt figure from Egypt. Most items are labelled and everything is clearly displayed. Much as I enjoy...More
