The Archaeological Museum of Amorgos is in Chora and is housed in the Tower of Gavras, a building of Venetian architecture, dating back to the 16th century. It opened its doors to the public in 1963 to house findings of the three ancient cities of Amorgos (Aegiali Arkesini and Minoa), dating from prehistoric times to the Roman period and the 2nd century AD.

Among the most important exhibits of the museum are the marble male torso statue found in Tholaria Aegiali and the marble female torso that represents the goddess Artemis. An addition to the museum is the Archaeological Collection of Amorgos Emmanuel Ioannidis that includes artifacts like statues, sculptures, ceramics, and other objects, dating from 3000 BC to the 3rd AD century.
