Relive Mykonos' naval history in the Aegean Maritime Museum


The Aegean Maritime Museum in Mykonos is the first museum of its kind in Greece that has restored historical exhibits so that they operate as they were originally designed and built. Located in a traditional Cycladic building in Tria Pigadia, the purpose of the museum is the preservation and study of the Greek nautical tradition. The exhibits of the museum include rich collections of ship models and rowers from the early Minoan period until the beginning of the 20th century, nautical charts, historical shipping documents, rare engravings and maps as well as ancient artifacts and navigational equipment and instruments. Its library consists of 5,000 rare books and an interesting archive of manuscripts and photos. The courtyard in the back is very attractive and a nice little oasis to escape from walking the charming narrow streets of Mykonos town. The Aegean Maritime Museum participates in international conferences and exhibitions, as well as in the festivities of the Hellenic Navy for "Maritime Week".
