AEGEAN MARITIME MUSEUM
The Aegean Maritime Museum is housed in a traditional Cycladic building of the 19th century, in the center of Mykonos, at Tria Pigadia. The building belonged to the legendary Μaster Nicholas Surmeli.

Until the 5th century AD, the library of the Museum consists of about 5,000 rare books, old and newer publications including a collection of manuscripts and photographs and is continuously being enriched.
