Archaeological Museum Parou reviews
Not to be missed on your visit to Parikias. It doesn't take long to take a walk around this museum and it is well worth the 2 Euro entrance fee (only 1 if you're a senior!) The artifacts are nicely..... more »
There is lots of great history here.For 2 euros it should not be missed! You can get very close to artifacts. more »
Absolutely great place to visit if you're visiting Paros, whether or not you're interested in history. It has a lot of things dating back thousands of years ago with most of them around 700BC-400BC. It also has the mosaic floor of the ancient Greek gymnasium that depicts Herakles' Labors, massive (although mostly broken) statues of Artemis, Athena and Gorgon. Tens of pots and burial casks, little pots, coins, and ornaments from that time period. Go during the early morning to avoid the Greek sun's peak at 12PM.
Very nice museum, with a very cheap ticket, but it needs more effort to become a modern museum. There are some truly beautiful pieces but more explanations are needed, maybe with some interactive displays and something more about the history of the relics, the excavations etcetera. As it is, it's a very old-fashioned museum but still well worth a visit if you like antiquities (as I do).
