Archeological Museum of Naxos

Archeological Museum of Naxos

Small but definitely worth a visit. Let me tell you why you should pay a visit to the museum in the Venetian fortress of Kastro.

You may not find most of the important finds or monuments associated with the island of Naxos in this small museum. The famous Sphinx of Naxos for example was a present from the rich islanders to the Oracle of Delphi or the also famous Naxian Lions on the island of Delos. 

There are geometric, archaic and classic vases, amphoras and figurines, but Naxos is most famous for the Cycladic Culture, a pre-historic culture with Naxos as center. A lot of finds have been taken to Athens to display in the National Archeological Museum, but there are still important discoveries to make.
