The Agricultural Museum of Mykonos, Cyclades: 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 from the 16th century and belonging to the Folklore Museum of the island. This windmill is placed on a hill in the area of Ano Myloi, meaning "Upper Windmills", overlooking the bay of the capital town, to the east of the island.

The Agricultural Museum is actually a division of the Folklore Museum and it exhibits a vast collection of agricultural tools that were traditionally used in the centuries before industrialization, as well as certain 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.
There is a festivity held in this museum every year 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 gives 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 little twin churches.
It also offers very nice views of the town below.
Another positive point about this interesting site is that has no admission charge.
