More to see outside the museum

The Aegean Maritime Museum manages three additional historical exhibits located elsewhere on Mykonos: the picturesque Armenistis lighthouse and two vessels moored at the Hellenic Navy’s museum wharf at the Paleo Phaliro Marina—the Evangelistria (a Perama-type sailing boat) and the Thalis o Milissios (a cable-laying steamship). All three can be viewed for free from outside without having to purchase an additional admission ticket.
