Aegean Maritime Museum

It is housed in a captain’s house of the 19th century that belonged to captain Nikolaos Sourmelis, who aided the Cretans in their fight against the Turks. It was founded in 1983 by the Mykonian ship owner Georgios Drakopoulos and it has been open to the public since 1985. The museum’s exhibits illustrate the history of shipping in the Aegean region from Antiquity until today. They include ship models from the pre-Minoan period to the end of the 19th century, maps, engravings, numerous coins, amphorae, navigation and shipping instruments etc. There is a collection of replicas of ancient funerary sculptures with sea-related subjects and a turret with the mechanism of the lighthouse of Armenistis in the garden.
