Suddenly the museum closed on or around the 12th June. It has been alleged there is some form of family dispute going on. Check the latest position before you go. Even if it is closed, you can still enjoy the other archeological museum on the...More

It is mainly about family that lived there in 1904 rather than when it was built, which is fine if you know that going in. I approached to visit the "castle" with 1600's in mind. As you go through the couple small rooms and read...More

Although we spent four days in Naxos and walked around Chora Old Town many times, the much vaunted castle remained something of a chimera. We never discovered much more than a wall here or part of a tower there! The Venetian Museum is set in...More

This museum give you a laminated sheet to walk through the house to see various things. My wife thought it was much more interesting then me. The best part of the museum was looking outside at the views of Naxos town and the waterfront.

Very interesting collection of exhibits in a beautiful setting. Glorious views from the windows. Go before it gets too hot in the day as it is a bit of a climb.

The Venetian is resplendent with household furniture and costumes from an elegant past. Fantastic views from the windows overlooking the port. A must see in Nazos
