    Small but interesting
    A small museum with two only two rooms but very interesting. I think it gives a nice view of traditional life in Sifnos and in the other Cyclades. The building looks like a house and you will surely see it as you wander around the village. If I remember well, it is next to a church. Sadly the museum is open only in the mornings, so you have to lose a couple of hours from swimming to visit. After all, there are barely any other sights/museums in Sifnos.
