Apiranthos Geological Museum

The Geological Museum of Apeiranthos belongs administratively to the “Municipality of Naxos and Small Cyclades”. It worked as a small collection of minerals and ores from 1964 in the building of the Primary School of Apeiranthos with the initiative of Manolis Glezos. The visitor, depending on his time and interests, can choose between exhibits, maps and posters, covering a wide range of geological topics related to the geology of Naxos Island and the Aegean Sea. Exhibits and geological maps provide information on the local geology, the lithology of various geological units of Naxos and the South Aegean, as well as on the significance of minerals, mineral commodities and processing products for the economy and the civilization. The necessary information in Greek and English is given in a simple way, accessible to non-experts. The visitor begins his journey from the "Naxos Hall" and continues in the "Aegean and the World Hall”.
