TINOS (Small town) KYKLADES
Situated on Leoforos Megaloharis, this museum opened in 1963. It contains a rich collection of vases and objects for general use from different periods, as well as steles from the 5th century B.C., found in Exombourgo and Kampo. The first geometrical and pre-geometrical tools (10-8th century B.C.) from Exombourgo, Ktikado and Kardiani are also exhibited. In the courtyard, one can admire friezes from the altar of Poseidon and Amfitriti and beautiful mosaics found in the temple of Panagia. The museum houses a rich collection of coins from Tinos, but only a few are on exhibit.
