  Since 1973 this museum has been housed in the Venetian building of the Freridon School where the renowned Greek author Nikos Kazantzakis was educated as a young man. The museum hosts works of art as well as everyday items (5300 B.C. - 5th c. A.D.) that were brought to light during systematic excavations conducted on the island from end of the Second World War to date. Among other exhibits visitors can find collections of marble statuettes from the Early Cycladic period (3200-2300 B.C.), vases of the Mycenaean and Geometric period, as well as pottery and glass vases of the Roman period.
