The museum is housed in a 19th century building that was converted into a museum in 1985. Unquestionably the most impressive exhibit is a plaster copy of the Venus de Milo, at the entrance of the museum, which was offered by the Louvre Museum, where the famous original statue of the goddess is exhibited. The museum includes exhibits from the important prehistoric settlement of Philakopi, among them the famous Lady of Philakopi from the archaeological site of Klima, as well as obsidian samples revealing its importance on the development of the island. Visiting hours: April 1 - October 31 9:00-16:00 daily except Mondays.
