Mykonos Folklore Museum

Mykonos - Folklore Museum

It is housed in a two-storey captain’s house of the 18th century in the Kastro area near Paraportiani. It was dedicated in 1962. It has six rooms in which old furniture, Byzantine icons, ceramics, weights and measures, ship models etc. are exhibited. You will find the exhibition “Mykonos and the sea” on the ground floor, where the well of pirate Mermelechas is also located. It was discovered during maintenance works in 1977. A collection of Neocycladic stone sculptures from old houses and churches and an old funerary plaque known as the Kore of Mykonos constitute important exhibits. The Agricultural Museum (Bonis Mill) and Lena’s House are branches of the Folklife Museum.
