The Archaeological Museum

The Archaeological Museum was opened in 1999, and is located on the ground floor of the Town Hall (Amiradakeio Mansion) in the main village of Chora. It was founded by the 21th Ephorate of Prehistoric and Classical Antiquities and was financed by the Ministry of Aegean and the Ministry of Culture.

There are 4 rooms in the museum where you can learn about the history of Ios Island in the museum, and view many of the items from the prehistoric settlement of Skarkos. The main exhibits not to be missed are the Cycladic clay figurines and the headless sculpture of a female Hellenistic clothed figure.

The museum also hosts events, exhibitions and educational programmes.
