The Archaeological Museum of Apiranthos is housed in a small building in the most quaint, mountainous village of Naxos.
Findings from regional excavations are exhibited within it, including Cycladic figurines, utensils, marble and clay vessels, stone and metal tools, weapons, and sculptures, the oldest of which date back to the early Bronze Age. All items were retrieved from ancient cemeteries and settlements.

Apiranthos, also known as the Marble village, is home to three other small yet equally interesting museums: the Folklore Museum, the Geological Museum, and the Museum of Natural History.
