About Archaeological Museum of Delos

The Archaeological Museum of Delos is nestled within a UNESCO World Heritage Site on the Greek Island of Delos. It displays an extensive collection of statues, mosaics and artefacts uncovered on the island. With exhibits dating from the 25th to 1st century BC, it offers one of the greatest, ancient collections in Greece.

There are many fascinating artefacts to discover in the Archaeological Museum of Delos. Highlights include the Kouroi statues from the Sanctuary of Apollo which dates back to the 6th century BC, the original marble lions of Delos, and statues from the Temple of the Athenians. There are breath-taking, well-preserved sculptures of Artemis, Apollo, and beautiful bronze reliefs dating from 2nd to 3rd century BC. The long, bright halls of the museum are abundant with busts and sculptures discovered on the island. Admire the intricate detailing of the mosaic floor from the Scardana Quarter. The central panel depicts goddess Athena holding her owl and a spear and opposite, Hermes grasping the caduceus. Outside, Delos has plenty of landmarks to explore. Those wishing to remain close to the museum can take a short stroll to Agora of the Italians and the captivating Terrace of the Lions. Alternatively, visitors who have time to spare can walk the Sacred Precinct, explore the Ancient Theatre, House of Dionysus or Temples of Apollo. Take a picnic, overlook the ancient ruins and blue Aegean and imagine life in Delos many centuries ago.

Boat excursions operate from Mykonos to the island of Delos takes less than one-hour. During summer months, routes are also available from the islands of Paros, Naxos and Tinos. On arrival in Delos, visitors can explore exhibits at their own pace or with the help of a guide. Guide books are available to purchase at the entrance to the excavations. The Archaeological Museum of Delos is open from early morning until mid-afternoon. Visitors are prohibited from remaining on the island overnight.

Around 1872, the French School of Athens began an archaeological dig on Delos. It proved to be a fruitful mission. It was a huge project, where thousands of artefacts and relics were discovered. In 1904, the Archaeological Society of Athens built a museum on Delos to accommodate the discoveries. Today there are nine rooms in total, in addition to the outdoor temples, theatres and statues, and excavations continue to this day.
