Syros Museums - The Archaeological Museum in Syros, Greece is one of the oldest museums in the country, having been founded in 1834. Located in the centre of Hermoupolis, it is housed in the Town Hall and features an independent entrance on the western side of the building. Originally serving as the central museum of the Cyclades, the majority of exhibits were eventually distributed to smaller local museums. Today, the Archaeological Museum of Syros is home to findings from Syros, Amorgos, and Kythnos, with a strong focus on ancient artifacts from the early Cycladic period, dating back to the 3rd millennium BC. Particularly noteworthy are exhibits from the 600 Hellenistic graves that were excavated in the nearby region. Visitors can also explore random exhibits from Syros, grave columns, sculptures, and an impressive Egyptian statuette made from black granite.
