Archaeological Museum of Naxos (Greek: Αρχαιολογικό Μουσείο Νάξου) is a museum in Naxos Greece.

This newly declared historical monument is located in a Venetian building, built some time between 1600 and 1800 for the Jesuit school established in 1700, later becoming the Archaeological Museum in 1972.

The museum houses finds from the Early Cycladic period including figurines from Naxos itself, Kato Kouphonisi and Keros, from the Late Mycenaean period including stirrup jars and other grave goods from chamber tombs and other graves from the Kamini mound and Aplomata. A smaller area is given over to finds from the Geometric Period and later finds, including sculpture from all periods of Naxos' history.[1]

It is open from 08.30 to 15.00 except Mondays and public holidays.[2]
