The Agricultural Museum of Mykonos is located in Chora. It is an open-air site, although part of the display is housed in the Boni windmill, dating back to the 16th century and belonging to the Folklore Museum of the island.
This windmill is placed on a hill in the area of Ano Miloi (which translates to "Upper Windmills"), overlooking the bay of the capital to the east of the island.

The Agricultural Museum is a division of the Folklore Museum and features a vast collection of agricultural tools that were used before industrialization, as well as items related to the production of farm products.

Some of the main exhibits are a traditional threshing machine and a village-style oven, as well as a wine press, a water wheel, a stone water tank, and a dovecote.

A festivity is held in the museum on the second Sunday of September - the feast of the grape harvest.

The Agricultural Museum of Mykonos is very popular among visitors, not only because of its exhibits but also because it offers visitors the chance to get to know the inside of an authentic windmill, which, by the way, is still functioning. The windmill also includes the miller's house and two small twin churches. It also offers very nice views of the town below.
Another positive point about this interesting site is that there is no admission charge.

How to get there

The Agricultural Museum is located in Mykonos Town, just a 10-minute walk away from Fabrika central bus station and 2 minutes from a parking lot.

Private transfers: We recommend using an online pre-booked transfer service, which provides transfer by taxi, minibus, or private VIP car and arranging a pickup directly from the port, airport, or your hotel. Alternatively, there’s the option of arranging a pickup by a local driver at the following numbers: 0030 694 764 1474, 0030 22890 22400, or booking your taxi online.

Car rental: There’s the option of renting a car and picking it up directly from the airport, port, or your hotel. Using a rental car allows visitors to discover the Agricultural Museum and many other places of interest at their own pace.

Public transport: Note that there are two central bus stations in Mykonos Town: Fabrika and Old Port. Several buses depart from Fabrika to Platis Gialos during the day. Itineraries might change according to the season. Check the official timetables here.
Tip: Since buses don’t always stop at every scheduled stop of their itinerary, our advice to visitors is to inform the driver about their final destination in advance.
