The small Archaeological Museum of Ios is housed in a beautiful Neoclassical building called Amiradakio Hall. The Town Hall of Ios is housed in the same building. The museum hosts ancient items that have been excavated on the island from the second half of the 20th century and onwards. Most of the findings come from the prehistoric settlement of Skarkos and the ancient town of Ios.

The most interesting exhibits in the Archaeological Museum of Ios include clay statuettes of the first Cycladic period, inscriptions from the Classical, Hellenistic and Roman times, marble states, prehistoric tools, and burial columns. In the yard lie marble architectural parts, bases of statues and a sarcophagus.

From April to October, the Museum is open from 08:30 to 15:30 every day except for Tuesdays.
