Located in central Chora — around the corner from the Mykonos Folklore Museum — the Aegean Maritime Museum spotlights Mykonos' nautical past with the help of antique navigational instruments, model ships and old maps. Despite its small size, this museum is worth an hour's visit or more, especially if you're interested in maritime history. You should also check out the museum garden, which shelters larger artifacts like anchors and the largest lighthouse in the Aegean.

The Aegean Maritime Museum is open every day from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Admission is about €3 EUR (around $4 USD).
